How Are 2013 Changes Working Out for These 2 Oil Companies?

One early trend in 2013 was the increased pressure from activist investors in overthrowing CEO wildcatters in the oil and gas space. The most notable changing of the guard occurred at Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK  ) , where CEO Aubrey McClendon stepped down in April. SandRidge Energy (NYSE: SD  ) CEO Tom Ward soon followed his former business partner and stepped down after TPG-Axon waged a proxy battle against him.
