leafysuburb: Yes a nice Dividend Yield for any Income portfolio. A further two short term share price injections that may come would be from any Non Opec meetings (normally the day before) and the Opec meeting proper on the 25th May in Vienna. Both of these I have classed as one injection. hxxp:// This then being followed by a potential second injection of post election stock market rally the day after the general election on the 8th June. dyor
money maker1: Highlands Natural Resources - HNR - is looking ripe for a rebound as its all cheap onshore USA and there is a nice mixture of oil, gas and helium. Analyst current valuations range from 3 to 8 times the current share price, and with a multiple drilling program this year it won't stay down for long.
leafysuburb: The BP share price is doing just fine. I think you qualify for the dividend if you are holding on Friday. Then we should have a good run into the Opec meeting
veryniceperson: Oil price down to $47.65 barrel. Won't help BPs share price today.
scoobydoo99: The BP share price linked to the oil price? What a ridiculous theory...
alphorn: Ridiculous to think that BP could not be taken over. Potential funds though may go into the Saudi floatation? I would not bank on it but it probably helps to underpin the share price.
adh0: 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).
smurfy2001: Grab BP's 7% dividend yield while you can analysts say as strategic plans impress P PLC's (LON:BP.) plans for the next five years went down well with the City with two heavyweights expecting a better performance to lead to a share price revival. Martijn Rats, an anayst at Morgan Stanley, which has an overweight investment stance and 515p target price, said the oil giant had outlined a credible path towards substantially higher free cashflow in coming years. “This will progressively put its dividend on more secure footing. In our assessment, BP has the portfolio to deliver this. Starting from 7%, the potential for yield contraction is large.” In his first strategy update for three years Robert Dudley, BP’s chief executive, said the key message was that combined cashflows from its upstream and downstream operations could reach between US$22-24bn in 2021. Oil production is expected to grow by 5% a year on average from 2016 to 2021, while cost per barrel will drop to US$34-40. “Assuming a stable price environment and portfolio, BP now expects return on average capital employed (ROACE) for the Group to recover steadily over the next few years and to be over 10% by 2021.” Citigroup said the update had highlighted a much better than expected improvement in the downstream operations than had been previously guided. As a result, the US broker has raised its earnings forecast between 2017-20 by 7% on average, while steady uplifts in return on equity (to 14% by 2021) make the current rating undemanding. Dividends will fully covered at low-US$60 per barrel oil in 2019 with cashflow expanding thereafter said the broker, which is a buyer with a target price £5.10. Shares rose 3% to 466.8p.
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.
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.
