In this paper, we study the orbital stability of peakons and periodic peakons for a nonlinear quartic Camassa-Holm equation (QCHE).We first verify that the QCHE has global peakon and periodic peakon solutions. Then by the invariants of the equation and controlling the extrema of the solution, we prove that the shapes of the peakons and periodic peakons are stable under small perturbations in the energy space.
