    who is surprised?

    be honest, who is surprised that this is now under 42 and weaker than all of its competitors today? anybody hv the balls to admit they were wrong on the direction of this POS since at least jan? or that falling oil and rising dollar are hurting this? I suspect not but maybe someone will surprise me.

    • I am surprised, but still confident of long term growth.

      I know this, if it stays down here, I would like for it to stay here until at least June 28 so that I can get shares cheaper in the div reinvestment.

    • Bp, 41.4-45 Resistance before it breaks out next Febuary, or sooner when people realize we need oil, not only desperately in the US, but more desperately in the mid east, Asia, and Central America

    • Surprise not at all, it doesn't matter in what you invest your money, All stocks including mutual funds are just as bad. What is important that don't let this depress any one. Even the rich companies are hurting. We came into this world with nothing and leave with nothing. Enjoy life it is to short, We go thru bad times and good times.

      Let me explain one thing , I have several friends that work for B.P. and bought stock in 60,70, 80, and etc. they feel like there whole savings has gone to hell , well it hurts but they eat and sleep no different than anyone. Their health and faith is what keeps them going. So hang in there we will get thru this.

      Worse was if a tornado took everything just like some families earlier this year. They did not have a chance at all.

      Remember this " You have not lost anything yet, unless you sell below your purchase price". I have traded stocks for 35 years and have been in the worse and still survive. No one get rich overnight unless they gamble. The stock market is no different than Vegas, it has better returns sometime.

      We have not made what we projected so far this year, but it's not over.

      I am not any different than most of you as far as this subject.

      My point of view is tomorrow can be a brighter day.

      • Well Mega, you're quite correct! And your insight is appreciated! However, I'm not sure BP is doing all that it can. As was pointed out on CNBC this evening, it seems like BP is always in a "fight" with someone, and controversy seems to stalk BP each day! It's time for BP to do some major work on it's image! Other majors don't seem to be haunted with continual negative images! I was hoping Dudley could tackle this issue, but alas, no apparent results yet!

    • so many hopeful voices, so little reason.

    • Please tell us more about the rising dollar since the beginning of 2011.

      Question: you were so right about BP falling from the start of the year, I'd assume you are happy now after shorting/buying puts.

      You don't sound happy.

      Second question: Even a monkey can be right with a 50-50 chance. Why are you so proud?

      End point: BP is a better buy today than it was 1 Jan IF rpt IF you don't have the investment horizon of a fruit fly.

    • Ya, and it's up from 41.87... Everyone can pick a spot in the past and make a direction claim.

      Where is it going from here? Zero? That doesn't make a lot of sense.

    • Just curious: Is "Dou" short for Douche?
