How is this in any sense "Good News" for BP? How is $14billion plus $6billion less than $20billion?
Speculation was the top end of BP's liability could top $50b. $14 + $6 is a lot less than $50. The stock has been trading with some possibility of that $50b number; now it will trade with a much less likely possibility of that number.
