hellscream: that dividend is the only thing we got going for us atm I'm afraid, I think the days are long gone for getting any decent share price.

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://www.opec.org/opec_web/en/311.htm 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

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.
