hydrogen economy: BP back to early 90's price, way below the depths of Macondo crisis, maybe not too surprising as the list of risks and uncertainties is pretty scary. -When will COVID stop killing demand and how quickly will it ramp up? -Have we passed peak oil, will renewables on one side and cheap coal on the other crush O&G? -Will OPEC+ and USA continue production discipline or let it rip? - Can BP make a profitable clean energy business and will the investment costs of doing do plunge the company into a debt crisis like that of the late 80's? - Does BP have the skills and cost base to compete in the renewable energy sector? - Will the dividend be cut or stopped? - Does Management have what it takes? - Will ESG divestment continue to crush SP? No-one really knows, though many will tell us they do. The market is taking a pretty bleak view and it's hard to do otherwise. Not all the above may drop on the downside and there could well be positive surprises. No doubt the share price will overshoot on the way down so there may be a trading opportunity here. I don't hold BP but have a small number of RDSB, I think neither looks like an investment at present, just trades and rather risky ones. Clean energy funds/ETFs seem a much better investment prospect, even after the recent run up. INRG (which has a bias to clean energy technology over utilties) is up over 75% YTD BP down 57%. If Biden wins and spends $2T on clean energy there will much more to come.
florenceorbis: Does the BP share price make it the best buy in the FTSE 100? Alan Oscroft | Sunday, 18th October, 2020 |. What can you say about BP (LSE: BP)? This time last year, I’d have rated the BP share price as one of the most dependable in the FTSE 100. I know oil is politically out of favour, but I’ve always expected it to be with us for many decades yet. And the big oil companies will surely be heading moves away from fossil fuels anyway. Twelve months ago, BP shares were down over the previous year. From the highs of September 2018, the price had lost close to 15%. It was essentially following a weakening in the oil price. But we’d previously had a bull run, and BP was paying very attractive dividends. That’s all changed now. BP share price crash So far in 2020, the BP share price has lost more than half its value. And since those record 2018 levels, it’s down 65%. Today, BP shares have reached their lowest for the entire two decades of the current century. The price was even higher during the oil price crisis, when oil dropped to $25 per barrel. If someone had told you a year ago that this would happen, you’d have laughed at them, right? The oil price collapsed briefly in the 2020 stock market crash. But it’s recovered since then, and now trades at over $40. On that measure, the BP share price surely deserves to be significantly above its oil crisis levels. Well, the old BP, maybe. Dividend shock But we’ve experienced one truly momentous event in 2020, which chilled investors to the bone. BP cut its dividend. Even throughout the earlier oil slump, its CEO at the time, Bob Dudley, calmly assured us the dividend was safe. He appeared totally confident, and that confidence was contagious. Mr Dudley has retired now, replaced by Bernard Looney. And BP has slashed its dividend in half. That news came with first-half results in August, the same day the company announced its “New Strategy To Deliver Net Zero Ambition.” The BP share price wavered for a few days, and then dropped like a brick. The core of the new plan is to aim for a tenfold increase in low-carbon investment by 2030, with a rise of up to eightfold by 2025. And it includes all kinds of reductions: hydrocarbon production down 40% by 2030, emissions from operations down 30%-35%, upstream emissions down 35%-40%, no exploration in new countries… and more. Buy, sell, or what? I reckon BP was rather canny in the timing of all of this. I think it would have been a harder sell to institutional investors had it come at a time of medical and economic health. But what should we do now? BP hasn’t forgotten its investors, at least not according to the new strategy. It intends the rebased dividend to be resilient. And at today’s BP share price, the yield is up around 8%. The company also says it will return at least 60% of surplus cash through buybacks, and aims at “7-9% annual growth in EBIDA per share to 2025.” Is the new BP a good investment now? With the shares on a P/E of 11 based on 2021 forecasts, and that high rebased dividend yield, I think it could be one of the best buys on the FTSE. Investors might need nerves of steel, though. Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK
cobourg1: Although the aptly named "Looney" has written down the book value of the assets by billions, I assume that the oil is still in the ground and the rights still belong to BP and some or all of it could be recovered if the oil price goes higher, which I personally expect. Or have I got this wrong? I am now holding at 230p and happy to stay here for a bit for income as I don't expect BP will dare to touch the dividend with the share price so low. From memory after the Gulf rig fire with the share price in the low £3 pounds Exxon was said to be looking at BP. Well they're cheaper now! Although HMG might not like it, and don't the UK Gov hold a golden share giving them the last word, or have I mis-remembered this? A merger of some kind might be more possible.
bracke: imastu "Always good to hear from someone who knows what they're doing." =================================================================== I only 'think' I know what I'm doing! You need to observe what the share price does when it reaches the wedge lower trend line. It may rise straight through or retrace. A retrace is not a problem provided it doesn't form a lower low which would not be so good. Unable to post a chart as ADVFN will not accept charts from the upload site I use. I understand your confusion about 'higher low' it's been so long since BP. posted one on the Daily chart.
chess123: Bought BP @ Rdsb @ Rdsa, thought would be great to hold over the long term, but must admit gutted with the drop, also bought ferrexpo, which has been great for dividends recently, so surprised that ferrexpo could overtake bp share price, never in my dreams did I think that could happen, I do see the share price dropping below 200p which is pretty surprising in my books anyway, I can hold and don't need to sell at the moment but very dissapointing overall hoping that we can get some sort of upward momentum but seems some way off .
ariane: Https:// Other companies worth keeping an eye on as oil prices bounce back: Total (NYSE:TOT) is one of the few oil majors truly diving head first into the new energy reality It is not only aware of the needs that are not being met by a significant portion of the world’s growing population, it is also hyper-aware of the looming climate crisis if changes are not made. In its push to create a better world for all, it has committed to contributing to each of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. From workplace safety and diversity to societal progression and reducing its carbon footprint, Total is checking all of the boxes that the next generation of investors hold close to their hearts. And that should pay off for the giant. While Total’s share price slipped in March along with the wider market, Total’s pivot towards sustainability has helped it outperform some of its peers. Though it still maintains a major presence in the global oil and gas industry, it has made significant strides in the renewable realm, as well. BP (NYSE:BP) is another European energy giant slowly pivoting towards greener energy alternatives. BP, which has been criticized in the past as being slow and late to the environmental cause, could now leapfrog its peers. We are still a long way from Beyond Petroleum. But chief executive Bernard Looney believes that we are only 30 years from a net zero BP. He has promised that in September the company will lay out a more detailed plan that shows the path to that destination. But he has shown already that there is more to his commitment to net-zero than there was to Beyond Petroleum 20 years ago. “Renewables and natural gas together account for the great majority of the growth in primary energy. In our evolving transition scenario, 85% of new energy is lower carbon,” Spencer Dale, BP group chief economist, said, commenting on the outlook to 2040.
cobourg1: TrickyTree Most of us are in the same boat having bought at higher levels. The best course of action is to hold and you may not need to hold them for as long as you might think. Reasons for hope: You have got the dividends to keep you warm and where else can you get a substantial income from a safe investment. BP is not going broke. The world needs to find 5 million barrels a day to replace depletion, the current lack of investment in exploration and development will produce an oil price spike sooner or later when demand increases - and it will increase. Low prices lead to lack of concern about usage and inhibit the economics of alternative energy sources. Stand on a motorway bridge - how many electric vehicles do you see go by? Oil will be an energy source for years yet especially for transport. The world is a dangerous place and the Middle East is especially dangerous. Imagine Iran causing trouble around the Straits of Hormuz. What do you think the BP price would be then? I personally think that trouble with Iran is not far away. The oil market is inherently unstable. Slight under or over production compared to demand has a violent effect on the price. I could go on. Just remember that selling at a low price is no remedy for having failed to sell at a higher price. We have been here before with oil gluts. Tomorrow I buy some more at this bargain price. Let's see where we are in a few months time. The surefire way to make money is to buy something when it's cheap and hold it until it goes up in price. It really is that simple.
smartie6: Not an investor in BP. Just interested to see how far you regulars believe the share price could fall?
sarkasm: Second quarter interim dividend for 2020 Payments of dividends in sterling On 4 August 2020, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the second quarter 2020 would be US$0.0525 per ordinary share (US$0.315 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 25 September 2020 to shareholders on the share register on 14 August 2020. The dividend is payable in cash in sterling to holders of ordinary shares and in US dollars to holders of ADSs. The board has decided not to offer a scrip dividend alternative in respect of the second quarter 2020 dividend. Dividend reinvestment plans have been made available for this dividend for ordinary shareholders and ADS holders (subject to certain exceptions) to receive additional BP shares. Sterling dividends payable in cash will be converted from US dollars at an average of the market exchange rate over the four dealing days from 8 to 11 September 2020 (GBP1 = US$1.29846). Accordingly, the amount of sterling dividend payable in cash on 25 September 2020 will be: 4.0433 pence per share.

cobourg1: Whats the general consensus of if this divi will be maintained? ................................................................................... I think it probably will be. Can't see the Board of BP wanting the share price any lower than this, which a reduced dividend would provoke. We moan about the share price but where else can you get a dividend return like this on a large stable company? In 20 years time there will still be a profitable company called BP IMO but it's logo will be painted on the sides of wind generators and etched into the glass of photovoltaic cells, or emblazoned on the sides of hydrogen tanks, and at my age sadly I wont see it!
