This is a "Giant Tortoise Stock." Like a giant tortoise, It may be big and slow, but it has a hard shell (economic moat), can swim far (enter into new and emerging markets and industries), and live long.

Aren't giant tortoises an endangered species?

The young are also confused by lights on the beach and often head in the wrong direction only to die as they cannot find what they need to survive.

The "young" you are referring to are other small oil companies looking to make a name for themselves in this world. Doesn't look good for 'em.

Actually, it is the newly hatched sea turtles that need to find their way to the water, usually at night. Tortoises are land animals and don't swim much at all, certainly not long distances.
