The following video is from this week's Motley Fool Money radio show, with Chris Hill, Ron Gross, James Early, and Charly Travers. It was a mixed week for Chesapeake Energy, as the company reported strong earnings but also confirmed it is the subject of U.S. Justice Department investigation into possible criminal antitrust violations. In this segment, the guys analyze the challenges facing Chesapeake and discuss whether now is the time for investors to jump in or whether they'd be better off with a company like Devon Energy.
