As long as the share price is significantly undervalued I would rather buybacks. Once it is fair value then returning cash is probably preferable (but mathematically it is the same). It is significantly undervalued due to the sentiment you mention. I could also argue that the buybacks help mop up shares that institutional investors are selling for no other reason than ethical grounds. At least that stops the price falling further. Barclays has given this a 475p target and says returns should be 10% this year.

In theory share buybacks should work like that but very often the market is already moving the share price in other ways, for example the price of oil or the focus on climate change or which sector of stocks are flavour of the month etc etc. I would much rather have the cash in my hands through divis whilst the above goes on (and pick and choose my sale and purchase activity in the mix). There is no guarantee they are going to move towards (say) £3.50 and above whilst this share buyback activity is happening (indeed the share price has fluctuated up and down a lot whilst they have been doing the buybacks). A stronger divi would probably make the shares more attractive anyway.🤷R05;♂️

The share buybacks do make a difference. Every one they buy I own more of the company. Please sell your shares so I can own a proportion of your shares too without paying anything. On a serious note, if you are thinking about moving the share price higher, they seem to be buying if the share is below 310p at the moment. Also after Q2 earnings I am expecting the pace of buybacks to at least double. If the world keeps turning off the oil taps at the current rate, oil will suddenly spring to $200 when everyone realises there is a shortage.

Yes and the share buybacks make no difference. Rather have more divis.🤷̴5;♂️

New report from the IEA - "No new oil and as fields are needed in the net zero pathway".... New energy security challenges will emerge on the way to net zero by 2050 while longstanding ones will remain, even as the role of oil and gas diminishes. The contraction of oil and natural gas production will have far-reaching implications for all the countries and companies that produce these fuels. No new oil and natural gas fields are needed in the net zero pathway, and supplies become increasingly concentrated in a small number of low-cost producers. OPEC’s share of a much-reduced global oil supply grows from around 37% in recent years to 52% in 2050, a level higher than at any point in the history of oil markets. hTTps://www.iea.org/news/pathway-to-critical-and-formidable-goal-of-net-zero-emissions-by-2050-is-narrow-but-brings-huge-benefits-according-to-iea-special-report

Good call. Oil close to $70 a barrel, should improve margins.

Suspect the 3.10 buyback threshold will need to be raised as I do not expect any more can be got at 3.10 or below unless POO tanks. My guess is they sit on their hands for a day or so....they are not in any rush it seems.

how many educated people can handle 10% base rates, would have no effect on me. this is a big brother government with too much control (just look at housing) worst downturn in 300 years, yet a booming housing market. this is a pure transfer of wealth going on. still waiting for our great chancellor to make is first cut in 2 years.

Doesn't make sense . I can accept you don't have to be educated to make money but it would be good to post comments that are understandable

Interesting price action yesterday on the 14th. BP looked to be buying up all available shares under 310p. Once there were no sellers around this price the price jumped out of the range. Under 4m shares were bought. Not sure exactly but I would estimate there were another $250m worth of shares to buy back so are are half way through.

All very sad - I note the Daily Telegraph carries a front page story on this subject today too. Let's see if the US envoy can help reduce tensions in the area.

I think Israel may target Iran soon for supporting Hamas. That could add $10 to the oil price or more.

Good point. Russia could take it without paying. Ah those Russian's.

With the geopolitical tensions, I suspect valuation calculations may be meaningless unless the Russian state agrees to buy it back or in the worst case seize the stake for nothing . Interesting scenario in the latter case. Can BP stop that if it became a risk ?

Something to ponder. Wonder if BP would ever sell there 19.5 % in Rosneft. What would it be worth. It would pay there debt down some what. Just a thought.
