gary38: Hurricane Energy and EnQuest among the few 'buys' left in oil sector - MacquarieShare 11:33 03 Feb 2017"Hurricane offers 82%+ upside to our target price from the current share price, and has the clearest near-term tangible value creation opportunities, in our view.oil platformValuations in the oil sector have caught upIt is harder work picking winners in the oil and gas sector now that crude prices have steadied and share prices have climbed, so says Macquarie.Kate Sloan, analyst at Macquarie, most share prices are close to fair value and as a result many in the sector have been downgraded.Cairn Energy PLC (LON:CNE), Faroe Petroleum plc (LON:FPM), Ithaca Energy Plc (LON:IAE), Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) and Tullow Oil plc (LON:TLW) are all relegated to a 'neutral' rating.Three of Macquarie's 'top picks' retain their 'buy' recommendations; Hurricane Energy Plc (LON:HUR), EnQuest Plc (LON:ENQ) and Africa Oil Corp (TSE:AOI).Of the three, Hurricane Energy is deemed to have the clearest value opportunities."Hurricane offers 82%+ upside to our target price from the current share price, and has the clearest near-term tangible value creation opportunities, in our view."Further exploratory drilling (ongoing) and progress on the Lancaster development could add significant value, building on the success the company enjoyed in 2016."Macquarie has a 90p price target for Hurricane (current price: 51.25p).EnQuest, meanwhile, is Macquarie's pick for further oil price leverage combined with low risk project progression."Although the rest of the sector now reflects a much higher discounted oil price than it did four months ago, EnQuest is still discounting US$63/bbl, the same number it was back in August 2016," Sloan said."We believe the valuation gap will be narrowed in the coming months once the market starts to believe in Kraken delivery."Macquarie has a 79p target price for EnQuest (current price: 46.34p).Sloan added that Africa Oil's has very attractive upside through de-risking the discoveries in Kenya's South Lokichar basin, where it partners Tullow.
bill hunt: Interesting to see what the market reaction is tomorrow to the deal in the Emirates. Also the issuance of new shares at 447p and the effect on the share price.

optomistic: Good morning Bracke, I wasn't looking so far back :-) ....BP plc 19% Potential Upside Indicated by HSBC Posted by: Amilia Stone 8th November 2016 BP plc using EPIC/TICKER code LON:BP has had its stock rating noted as ‘Reiterates217; with the recommendation being set at ‘BUY’ this morning by analysts at HSBC. BP plc are listed in the Oil & Gas sector within UK Main Market. HSBC have set a target price of 540 GBX on its stock. This is indicating the analyst believes there is a potential upside of 19% from today’s opening price of 453.9 GBX. Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has decreased 40.55 points and increased 30.65 points respectively.
optomistic: Good morning all Great to see a little brightness in the BP share price after my return to a dull damp 'up North' How pleasant it's been to walk around in 'short sleeves' in my own country in Oct, did have two cool days though but how nice it is in Cornwall. Now all we need are some super results on the 1st and that will pay for a few more sojourns to the South :-)
cliveb: Quite right Opto And if as others have suggested and the £ drops in value the effect would be to make BP more expensive in £s, IE the share price will rise in sterling terms, As would a lot of other things,
hellscream: The share price is gonna implode diku.
diku: Any good chart reader here?...looking at the header chart above of the 50sma & 200sma...BP share price,50sma line & 200sma line are all at the same this good, bad or ugly for the share price?...
naughty poster: BP limping along The oil giant will announce its first-half figures on 28 July, and the weak oil price is taking its toll on the profits. BP Source: Bloomberg The company has been struggling over the past five years. Major setbacks like the Gulf of Mexico disaster and the collapse in the price of oil at the back end of 2014 have kept the share price under the cosh. The oil giant is still suffering from depressed energy prices, and it revealed a 39% drop in profits for the first three months of 2015. As I previously stated, BP is relatively cushioned from weak oil prices as the downstream business offsets the losses incurred at the exploration operation. The price of oil bounced back in early 2015, but it has been drifting lower since the middle of the year which will still be an issue for BP. The refinery business is suited to lower oil prices, and to tackle weak commodity markets the firm has been cutting back on production levels, reducing the number of staff and asset-stripping. BP sold off a North Sea pipeline for £324 million in April to beef up its cash reserves for legal costs in relation to the Gulf of Mexico accident. The firm has plans to spin-off $2 billion worth of assets within the year. The oil giant will report its second-quarter figures on 28 July, and dealers are expecting revenue of $54.31 billion and adjusted net income of $1.69 billion. The first-quarter figures easily exceeded estimates, and revenue came in at $54.19 billion, and adjusted net income was $2.57 billion; analysts were anticipating $51.9 billion and $1.2 billion respectively. BP will reveal its full-year numbers in February 2016, and the market is anticipating revenue of $236 billion and adjusted net income of $7.4 billion. These forecasts represent a 33% drop in revenue and a 38% decline in adjusted net income. Equity analysts are bullish on BP, and out of the 33 ratings, seven are buys, 20 are holds, and six are sells. The average target price is 456p, which is 14% above the current price. Investment banks are very bullish on Royal Dutch Shell, and out of the 18 recommendations, nine are buys, eight are holds and one is a sell. The average target price is £22.63, which is 26% above the current price. BP’s share price has been trading lower since July 2014, and the bias points to further declines. The initial target will be 365p and if that mark is cleared then 300p will be the next level of support. A move back above 400p will be the resistance at 420p into play, and if that level is breeched the 445p level will be next upside target.
ih_500869: Buy BP at 448p By Robert Sutherland Smith | Wednesday 4 February 2015ShareProphets The New Year’s rapid increase in the BP (BP.) share price has been testimony to some old market truths; buy for book value and buy when the last man has heard the bad news. Naturally, it is always hard to make the practical judgement to work out when that is. There is no fairy tale means of actually knowing when the bottom has been reached. No bit of technology like a submarine echo finder to tell you how far you are from the sea bed of ultimate value. That is what makes equity investing an art not science. Obviously expensive shares can get even more obviously overvalued and obviously oversold shares, as in the case of BP, can get even more oversold. It is, as always in the highly inexact science of share picking, a matter of judgement. When I returned to the forlorn sight of the disappointing BP share price in December, the momentum still seemed to be downwards but there was obvious value in the asset backing and the dividend yield; provided the dividend was safe. The central message from this week’s statement covering the 2014 prelims is that the company’s managers have nailed their colours to the mast by stating that the dividend is a matter of first priority. The share price was 384p when I last looked at it in December last. It is now - last seen – 448p. In making that 16% jump the share price has clearly broken out of a recent downtrend. That is encouraging longer term although it means the share price is full of profits short term and they tend to attract profit takers as they always have. Last December, the balance sheet had an attributable net asset value of $129 billion which the market then valued at around $105 billion; so the shares were then selling at a handsome discount to equity assets. The prospective estimated dividend yield was then 6.7% and that looked safe given the cash flow cover and likelihood that the company could and would reduce capital expenditure as the price of crude had made some projects financially less attractive giving the potential for the release of more cash that could be put to dividend payment. I judged the shares to be attractive. So after the pound rise in the share price are BP shares still attractive? Yes; above all because of the dividend and the commitment to its being a first priority and the fact that there is the cash flow to cover. The statement speaks of reducing capital spending. Moreover, at a time when there is talk of Shell or Chevron buying BP, its management knows that the BP dividend is important to big UK institutions. In essence, at 448p a share, there is still asset backing and a good estimated prospective dividend yield on offer. I estimate the asset backing at the moment on the basis of the September balance sheet and current exchange rate as around 580p or so. The market consensus is to estimate a forecast dividend yield of 5.9% for next year and on a PER of 12.3. That equity, working off the September balance sheet, commands total assets of around 1200p a share, and that supports bid prospect calculations. These shares still look mighty attractive to me.
