waldron: the motely fool Forget the State Pension or a Cash ISA! I’d live off BP and Royal Dutch Shell’s 7% yields Harvey Jones | Sunday, 6th October, 2019 | More on: BP RDSB A golden egg in a nest Image source: Getty Images. The State Pension isn’t enough to give you a comfortable retirement and saving money in a Cash ISA won’t help much, as most now pay less than 1% a year. FTSE 100 oil giants BP (LSE: BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) look far more tempting as they both yield nearly 7% a year. Both are worth buying – just make sure you understand the risks as well as the rewards. Crude facts It already seems an age since the oil price surged in the wake of the drone attacks on Saudi Arabia Aramco facilities, which led to dire predictions of $300 oil. Crude has now fallen to a two-month low, with Brent comfortably below $60, as Saudi officials report that production has been restored to pre-attack levels. The BP share price is sliding as a result, and so is Shell. Soft global economic data isn’t helping, while US crude stockpiles have just registered a third straight weekly climb. With supply continuing to outweigh demand, BP is down almost 20% this year, while the Shell share price is off more than 15%. They have disappointed over five years as well, with BP up just 10% in that time, and Shell down 4%. The FTSE 100 rose around 15% over the same period. Dividend income heroes The good news is that both now offer healthy dividend streams, regardless of where their share prices go. BP currently yields 6.7%, with cover of 1.2, while Shell yields 6.6%, covered 1.5 times. These are comfortably above the FTSE 100 average yield of around 4.5%, although Shell has struggled to raise its dividend lately. BP and Shell are also trading at a discount, 12.3% and 12.7% times earnings respectively, against the FTSE 100 average of 17.17 times. These look like bargain prices. There are so many companies on the FTSE 100 in this position, which makes now a great time to pick up dividend stocks and hold them for the long term to give your retirement plans a real boost. Share price growth on top would be a bonus. Climate challenge After years of denial and delay, big oil now has to face up to the challenge of climate change, as solar and wind prices tumble, and motorists switch on to electric cars. BP is steadily remodelling itself, exploring everything from car charging networks to solar plants to biofuels. Some of these could deliver lucrative new income streams, others could swallow huge sums of cash and sink. Relying purely on oil and gas is no longer an option, so the challenge has to be met. Otherwise the backlash could be brutal. Shell plans to double the amount it spends on green energy to £3.2bn a year. There is a long road ahead, though. Major investments Shell remains the largest stock on the FTSE 100 with a market cap of £185bn; BP is in fourth place with £99bn. The world still runs on oil, even if we would rather it didn’t. BP is mostly over the Deepwater disaster and its earnings are forecast to rise 10% this year and 15% next. Shell looks patchier, with a forecast 16% drop in earnings this year, followed by a 24% rise in 2020. I still think both still merit a place in a well-balanced portfolio, and should keep your retirement income flowing nicely.
grupo: TIDMBP. RNS Number : 1881J BP PLC 15 August 2019 15 August 2019 BP p.l.c. Second quarter interim dividend for 2019 Scrip Dividend Programme On 30 July 2019, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the second quarter 2019 would be US$0.1025 per ordinary share (US$0.615 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 20 September 2019 to shareholders on the share register on 9 August 2019. The dividend is payable in cash in sterling to holders of ordinary shares and in US dollars to holders of ADSs. A scrip dividend alternative will be made available for this dividend allowing shareholders to elect to receive their dividend in the form of new ordinary shares and ADS holders in the form of new ADSs. The 'Reference Share Price' for the issue of new ordinary shares under the scrip dividend alternative is: US$6.070 for each new ordinary share. For holders of ordinary shares this is equivalent to 1 new share for approximately every 59.220 shares held prior to the ex-dividend date of 8 August 2019. The Reference Share Price is the average of the US dollar equivalent of the closing mid price quotation for a BP ordinary share on the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List for the five consecutive dealing days beginning on the ex-dividend date of 8 August 2019. The US dollar equivalent price each day is calculated from the sterling closing mid price using an exchange rate published in the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List. The 'Reference ADS Price' for the issue of new ADSs under the scrip dividend alternative is: US$36.470 for each new ADS. For holders of ADSs this is equivalent to 1 new ADS for approximately every 59.301 ADSs held prior to the ex-dividend date of 8 August 2019. The Reference ADS Price is calculated by multiplying the Reference Share Price by six (as there are six ordinary shares underlying each ADS) and adjusting for the fee payable to the Depositary under the ADS Deposit Agreement (US$0.05 per ADS). Prior to the 2012 first quarter dividend payment stamp duty reserve tax ("SDRT") of 1.5% was deducted from this calculation, but following a tax tribunal decision in 2012, HM Revenue & Customs will no longer seek to impose 1.5% SDRT on issues of UK shares and securities to non-EU clearance services and depositary receipt systems. Dividends payable in cash in sterling on 20 September 2019 will be converted from US dollars at the average of the market exchange rates for the four dealing days from 4 to 9 September 2019. The sterling cash dividend will be announced to the London Stock Exchange on 10 September 2019. The latest date for receipt of elections to participate in the Scrip Dividend Programme for this interim dividend is 3 September 2019. Shareholders must return their mandate form or otherwise input their CREST elections, to be received by BP's Registrar, Link, by 5.00 pm (London time) on 3 September 2019, and ADS holders must return their election form to the Depositary, JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., by 5.00 pm (New York time) on that date. Elections received after this deadline will apply to subsequent dividends only. Unless revoked by you, your scrip dividend election will apply for all future dividends for which a scrip dividend is offered. Evergreen elections for CREST shareholders will not be accepted and elections will revert to cash by default after the payment of each dividend.

la forge: Investomania H 4 undervalued shares? BP plc, Marks and Spencer Group Plc, British American Tobacco plc and Premier Oil PLC Do these stocks offer good value for money? BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L), British American Tobacco plc (LON:BATS) (BATS.L) and Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L) July 5, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA FTSE 100 British American Tobacco The valuations of shares in BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L), British American Tobacco plc (LON:BATS) (BATS.L) and Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) (PMO.L) appear to be relatively low according to my research. BP, for instance, has a P/E ratio of around 11.5 at the moment. Although the oil price could move lower depending on how the world economy performs, I think that investors may have factored this into the company’s share price to at least some degree. With BP continuing to invest in its Upstream and Downstream operations, I feel that the company’s long-term prospects could be improving. Short-term volatility may remain high, though. Marks and Spencer is moving in the right direction in my opinion. Investment in online and in its supply chain could help it to become a more focused omnichannel retailer that may make it more competitive. The process of changing its business model, though, may take some time in my opinion. Therefore, I’m not expecting a fast-rising share price. A P/E ratio of 8 appeals to me, and could mean that Marks and Spencer has long-term recovery potential. British American Tobacco faces a challenging and uncertain period in my opinion, with it seeking to gradually transition towards reduced-risk products such as e-cigarettes. Although this seems to have hurt investor sentiment, I’m optimistic about the growth opportunities that next-generation products could provide. With British American Tobacco having a dividend yield of around 7.2%, I feel that it may offer an appealing risk to reward ratio for the long term. Premier Oil’s P/E ratio of around 4 suggests that investors are uncertain about its future prospects. With the oil price set to remain volatile, I think this is somewhat understandable. While Premier Oil may be riskier than some of its larger peers due in part to its relatively high debt levels, it has a disciplined stance on costs and is in the process of reducing leverage. Therefore, while its stock price may remain volatile, I think its potential rewards could be relatively high when compared to some of its FTSE 350 sector peers.
the grumpy old men: Shell or BP: which FTSE 100 share would I buy now? Manika Premsingh | Friday, 28th June, 2019 | More on: BP RDSB Business man on stock market financial trade indicator background. Image source: Getty Images FTSE 100 giant Royal Dutch Shell‘s (LSE: RDSB) share price has been on the rise. It has increased by over 5% at the time of writing this article from the levels seen at the beginning of June. Further, even though there have been a few gyrations over the months, the share price has come a long way from the lowest levels seen in 2019 at the end of January. Needless to say, these are heartening developments for investors. Going forward, I will be watching the oil sector closely following tensions between the US and Iran and one key question comes to my mind: what is the potential impact on the share price of an oil company like Shell or its peer BP (LSE: BP)? Oil price outlook There’s no denying that higher oil prices are good for oil companies, but the potential economic damage from standoffs between countries can erode demand over the longer term, which in turn can negate the gains from price increases. I think both these arguments are worth considering, since we at the Motley Fool are interested in long-term investment opportunities. There’s no way of knowing how the geo-politics will play out, but I am yet to see any dependable forecasts predicting sharp increases in crude oil prices. In fact, if the situation remains contained, it could be exactly the opposite. The International Energy Agency’s update in mid-June said that supply is enough to “limit significant upward pressure on oil prices” going into 2020. Shell looks ahead with confidence With this as the background, I’d consider Shell’s merits as a company independent of the wider environment it operates in to make an investing decision. In other words, the latest oil price increases are a distraction from the actual investing story rather than a determining factor. From the last time I wrote about it, fully convinced that this is indeed a share worth holding in the long-term, little has changed. In fact, the price has risen by around 20% since. The company also sounds confident about the future, as revealed in its latest strategy update and financial outlook for 2025. Despite this, its price-to-earnings ratio (12 months trailing) is at an affordable 11.6x compared to peer BP, which is trading at 14.3x. Interestingly enough, this is despite the fact that BP has seen a lower share price rise in recent months. While the price charts for both companies reveal that they tend to move together, Shell has been the one that has attracted most investor interest. BP has its merits This doesn’t of course mean that BP isn’t a buy as the company has a lot going for it too. I am inclined towards shares that offer a good return on capital but dividends are an important consideration for investors and BP ticks those boxes. As my Foolish colleague Rupert Hargreaves pointed out recently, its dividend per share has risen impressively over the years and its strong track record is expected to continue. The share has also given good returns on capital, and I believe there is little in the company’s performance to suggest that it will be derailed. On balance, though I’d rather buy Shell. The bargain-hunter in me is attracted to the fact that it is still the cheaper of the two but its strong current momentum also appeals.

grupo: Investomania Does the BP plc share price offer long-term growth potential? Can the BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) share price deliver an impressive long-term performance? June 24, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA BP (LON:BP) BP plc BP plc The performance of the BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) share price could continue to be volatile in the near term in my opinion. Geopolitical risks in the Middle East look set to remain elevated, with the situation in Iran remaining highly fluid. This could impact on the supply growth in oil, while demand growth may be affected by economic data. The trade war between the US and China appears to have gathered pace in recent months, and this trend may yet continue over future months in my opinion. This could lead to challenging operating conditions for the business. Of course, in the long run one of the major threats facing BP and its peers is technological change. Electric vehicles seem to be growing in popularity. Indeed, I was reading this week about the world’s first prototype electric plane that is expected to cut fuel costs by as much as 90%. While I think new technology does threaten the growth prospects for oil and gas companies, I am of the view that it will prove to be an evolution rather than a revolution. Although 30% of vehicles sold in 2030 across the world are expected to be electric, the potential for rising car ownership across the emerging world in particular could mean that demand for oil remains high. Further, long-haul air travel is unlikely to be fully electrified for many years in my opinion due to a lack of battery power. Therefore, I feel that BP could offer investment appeal even over the long run. To my mind it has a sound business model, with investment in its Upstream and Downstream divisions having the potential to enhance its financial prospects. With a P/E ratio of 11.8, I feel that the stock could offer good value for money relative to the wider FTSE 100 at the moment.
ariane: Investomania Will the BP plc share price rise by another 17%? Does BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) offer further share price growth potential? April 9, 2019 Robert Stephens BP (LON:BP) BP plc BP plc Since the start of 2019, the BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) share price has risen by around 17%. That’s a strong result in my opinion after what had been a challenging final quarter of 2018. With the oil price having moved higher and investor sentiment being more bullish, could the company’s stock price increase further? Or, are there risks ahead that could lead to a challenging period for the business? Industry prospects In my opinion, the prospects for the oil and gas industry continue to be uncertain. There are risks facing a number of major oil-producing nations which could cause an imbalance between demand and supply in the near term. This may lead to volatility in the oil price, which may cause investor sentiment to come under pressure over future months. Longer term, I feel that the world is gradually moving towards cleaner fuels than gas and oil. This trend has been in place for some time, and its pace may quicken as cleaner alternatives such as electric vehicles improve in terms of range and cost. That said, I think that oil and gas will continue to be key parts of the energy mix over the long run. I feel that demand for them may remain high, since they are forecast to be key parts of industries such as transportation across the developed and developing world. Company performance Recent updates released by BP have been relatively positive in my opinion. The company’s strategy seems to be delivering on its goals, with its upstream and downstream segments operating relatively well. This suggests to me that its strategy is working well, and that it may be moving on financially from the challenges posed by the 2010 oil spill. With the company continuing to invest heavily in its operations and asset base, I think it could have a bright future. It has a number of projects that are set to come onstream over the medium term. They could act as catalysts on its stock price, and may allow it to continue to outperform the FTSE 100 over the medium term. Investment potential Even though the BP share price has risen significantly since the start of 2019, it still offers a margin of safety to my mind. For instance, it has a P/E ratio of 12.2 and a dividend yield of 5.4%. These figures suggest to me that the company could offer good value for money at the moment relative to its industry peers. Sure, there may be cheaper opportunities elsewhere in the oil and gas industry, but a number of other FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 operators have high levels of debt, as well as more concentrated portfolios. Therefore, I’m optimistic about the investment potential of the business over the long run. I think it has a sound strategy, that its wider industry may perform well in spite of the risks it faces, and that it offers good value for money compared to the wider FTSE 100.
adrian j boris: BP share price trades higher ahead of fourth-quarter update Group expected to post rise in year-on-year profit Tsveta Zikolova by Tsveta Zikolova Monday, 04 Feb 2019, 10:12 GMT BP share price trades higher ahead of fourth-quarter update Shares in BP (LON:BP) have climbed higher in London this morning ahead of the oil major’s fourth-quarter results tomorrow. The update will come after FTSE 100 Royal Dutch Shell (LON:RDSA) beat forecasts last week. As of 09:26 GMT, BP’s share price had added 0.96 percent to 526.50p, outperforming the benchmark FTSE 100 index which currently stands 0.28 percent higher at 7,039.58 points. The group’s shares have added more than seven percent to their value over the past year, as compared with about a 5.5-percent drop in the Footsie. BP to post Q4 results BP is scheduled to update investors on its fourth-quarter performance tomorrow and IG reports that a company-compiled consensus of 20 brokers suggests that the oil major will post underlying replacement cost profit – its version of net income – of $2.63 billion for the last three months of the year, down almost 31 percent from the $3.8 billion reported in Q3. Profit, however, is still anticipated to be 25 percent higher compared to Q4 2017. Proactive Investors meanwhile has quoted Deutsche Bank Lucas Herrmann as saying in a recent note that “sharp commodity declines combined with a challenging downstream means the strong earnings and cash momentum apparent for much of the past two years should end this quarter”. The analyst, however, reckons that the results “should show good year-on-year progress with headline cash flow strongly supported by the material release of working capital, helpful for balance sheets”. Analyst ratings update Royal Bank of Canada reaffirmed BP as a ‘top pick’ on Friday, without specifying a price target on the shares. According to MarketBeat, the blue-chip oil major currently has a consensus ‘buy’ rating and an average price target of 645.83p on the shares. As of 10:14 GMT, Monday, 04 February, BP plc share price is 526.50p.
grupo: INVESTMANIA Why I think the BP plc share price could offer growth potential I’m optimistic about the prospects for the BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) share price February 4, 2019 Robert Stephens BP (LON:BP) BP plc BP plc While the performance of the BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) share price has been volatile in recent quarters, I’m upbeat about the long-term outlook for the business. Sure, the oil price is likely to remain volatile over the near term to my mind. It is difficult to accurately predict how supply growth will change in the near term, with there being the potential for extensions to sanctions waivers on Iran. Similarly, the outlook for the world economy remains uncertain. Although consumer demand has generally been robust in recent months, that could change and demand growth for oil could decline. As a result, I believe that BP is a relatively risky stock which may experience periods of difficulty in future depending on the performance of the wider oil and gas sector. However, at the same time I remain optimistic about its long-term growth potential. I think that it has been able to invest in a range of areas across its asset base which has boosted its Upstream and Downstream performance in recent quarters. This could lead to stronger financial performance in future should operating conditions be favourable. Since BP has a dividend yield of around 6% at the moment, I feel that the company could offer a margin of safety. Its P/E ratio of around 11 suggests to me that it could represent good value for money compared to some of its FTSE 100 index peers. And with EPS due to rise by 11% this year, I’m upbeat about its financial and share price prospects. Although there may be less risky and more resilient stocks in the FTSE 100, I believe that the company’s low valuation and growth potential could help it to outperform the wider index over the long run after what has been a challenging period for the wider oil and gas industry.
maywillow: Https:// Why I think the BP share price could be the FTSE 100 buy of the decade Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 3rd February, 2019 | More on: BP Young woman sat at laptop by a window Image source: Getty Images. When it comes to finding dividend stocks, I think it’s hard to beat the BP (LSE: BP) share price. The company has almost everything going for it. It has a portfolio of some of the world’s best oil and gas assets, cash generation is strong, and the firm has a well-developed hydrocarbon distribution network around the world. More importantly, unlike so many other companies, BP doesn’t have to try to reinvent itself every few years. Indeed, one of the biggest problems companies face is trying to stay relevant over the long-term. This means investing millions or even hundreds of millions of pounds in research and development and new capital projects. All BP has to do is find oil and get it out of the group which, granted, isn’t that easy, but it’s easier than trying to predict the next consumer trend or invent the next miracle drug. That said, one threat we can’t ignore is BP’s business model, from the global transition away from dirty, polluting fossil fuels like oil and gas, towards cleaner renewable energy. According to BP’s forecasts, demand for oil and gas will continue to expand until around 2035, and then level off from there. This implies that the company will still be able to reap (and distribute to investors) the rewards of producing oil and gas. But the group is also trying to grow its presence in the renewable energy space — it’s not resting on its laurels — which I believe is a sensible move, considering the way the world is heading. Slow and steady As I’ve explained above, the main reason why I believe BP could be the FTSE 100 buy of the decade is its predictable business model. This means management can concentrate on other things like improving efficiency, profit margins and cash returns to investors. BP is already one of the FTSE 100’s top income-producing equities. It currently has a dividend yield of 6.1%, and the distribution is covered 1.5 times by earnings per share. There’s much more to BP’s cash returns policy than just its dividend. The firm is also forking out billions to buy back its own shares, which will reduce the number in issue, pushing up earnings per share, and ultimately, the share price. According to my figures, the amount of money BP is currently spending on buybacks is equivalent to a buyback yield of 0.5%. When added to the dividend yield, this gives a total yield for investors of around 6.6%. Investing for the long term Unfortunately, because the company forked out $10.5bn to buy a string of producing assets across the US from BHP in the middle of last year, management has informed shareholders that buybacks will take a back seat in 2019 as the firm devotes all available funds to reducing debt. Still, over the long term, these new assets should only lead to improved cash generation, which will ultimately mean higher cash returns for investors when the borrowings used to fund the deal are paid off. These are just some of the reasons why I believe the BP share price is the FTSE 100 buy of the decade.
