there wont be any merger/takeover, bp is too big, its just big traders moving the share price And anyway the government wont allow it.
£4.10 nailed on IMHO
My thoughts... Despite the weak (sub $50) oil price being a realistic possibility: They wont cut the dividend, which is now over 7% and if Sterling continues to slide as the shambles of a Brexit negotiation rumbles on for two years, this will only rise in £ terms. Or... They do cut the dividend, initially the share price will crash, BUT they will then almost certainly be taken out in a merger/takeover. If it is being looked at now when the price begins with a 4 it will almost certainly be considered if begins with a 3. And they will then get it for 6! I expect. So I am not selling now whilst the dividends come, and will actually top up at £4:40, and again at £4:10, £3.80 and £3:50 if it gets there (but I dont think it will).

22:57 BP : announces third gas find in North Damietta concession area 03/26/2017 | 05:39pm BST British Petroleum (BP) announced a new natural gas discovery in the North Damietta East Delta marine concession area. This is BP’s third find in that sector. The exploratory well (Katameya shallow 1) was dug to 1,961 metres in water of 108 metres in depth using the Kaher 2 drill. Electric drill records, pressure data, and fluid samples all confirmed a 37-metre thick gas carrier layer in sand rocks. The company is now studying the possible options to link that find to the existing infrastructure. Chief executive of BP Bob Dudley said that the new well is the company’s third find in that concession area, where the company is now developing the Atol field. He noted that continuous success proves the company’s confidence that the Nile Delta is a global gas basin. President of BP’s North Africa division Hesham Mekawy said that the company is happy with the continued success. He added that the find proves the company’s belief in the huge reserves of gas in the area, which will help the company develop the resources, as part of its long-term commitment to Egypt. The Katameya shallow 1 is 60 km north of Damietta, 30 km south of the Salamat field, and 35 km west of the Hapi marine field facilities. BP owns 100% of the find. (c) 2017 Daily News Egypt.

hellscreem. I do agree with you. We are in a real mess 1.8 trillion dept borrowing 60 billion a year to make ends meet.
we've gone the same way as japan, rates wont move over 1% for the next 10 years, we haven't got the financial muscle the american's got, we've got a super housing bubble supported by taxpayers money. and don't forget the government is borrowing money to pay ppl welfare, being the nice nanny state we are. workers..who cares about them, we're slash there pensions in halve and make'em wait till 70+.
as if the government got the guts to up the base rate, everyone is up to there eye balls in housing debt.
Good day Penycae Ref Your BP purchase I presume you had a rush of blood to the head following your return to the markets. I look at the chart and it looks lack lustre following the start of year drop. OK for day trades but nothing else. Perhaps if the oil price moves back up monkey will be exonerated, in the meantime maybe put him on a less rich diet with more roughage.
Paying 7% why would they. Buy the shares at this price why grumble. Surely just pick them up at this price or cheaper. Happy Days, simplistic I know.
Dividend been 10c for 10 quarters now. I would hope that a small increase might be being contemplated in the near future :-) (maybe after a round 12 quarters ?)
Morning all. I bought some of these yesterday (honest!) at 458.6. Trade is in profit, but the monkey says I should hold. Don't know what the little fella sees in the runes, but I'll stay with it. Bought an equal amount of BT at the same time. Not doing so well there. Trade well and prosper......
Very nice.

Bp. has been in the frame for so long as regards corporate action, it is likely to be sooner rather than later, has some great assets, the majors irrespective of the shale situation, are likely to consolidate again, and this one is pretty high up that list!
