By Jeff Reeves of InvestorPlaceWho's really worse, BP ( BP) or Goldman Sachs ( GS)? Consumers have plenty of reasons to be down on both companies right now. Energy giant BP is up to its elbows in oil as a deepwater well on the ocean floor continues to spew oil over a month after the initial failure, and Goldman is currently under investigation for allegedly peddling investments while at the same time profiting from those investments' failures. But some traders can't help but wonder whether the problems are overblown and one or both of these stocks are actually the bargain buy of the year right now. So what's the deal? Are these stocks really bad for investors, or are they just victims of bad press? First, let's look at how far they've fallen. BP stock is down 27% year to date and is trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of less than 7, with shares just $2 away from a 52-week low.
