Oil and natural gas company SandRidge Energy, Inc. shares have fallen from a price of more than $7.00 in May 2014 to less than $0.10 May 2016. SandRidge has struggled to manage nearly $4 billion in debt and has reduced its workforce, raising concerns about the company’s future as oil prices remain low. The stock was recently delisted from the New York Stock Exchange for “abnormally low” trading price levels and now trades on the OTC Markets (OTCMKTS: SDOC).
