    Why is the dividend yield on BP so much higher than other stocks in its sector?

    • First piece of advice, always do YOUR OWN DD, not rely on some posters opinion.

      As you might notice from all the people showing up to call out Nadsmis on his abuse and lies from other boards the last few days, he's probably not someone you should trust at all.

      In doing your DD on the issue of BP's dividend, look at the dimishment of projected earnings over the next 4 quarters, then ask yourself if the payout ratio looks all that good. (clue: the answer is "no").

      This company needs to pull a few rabbits out of its hat the next 12 months to keep that divi going. All IMHO.

      • Ikki, my lies and abuse? you are truly one big sicko. a total zero. your credibility should be zero and other BP investors should ignore your continued tirade and internet attacks on the company. a post from you to Tommy Chop Chop on a Yahoo finance site should illustrate utterly weird and bizaar you are. care to share some pics with us? ugh...

        Ok. Your posts over the last day reminded me of why I was drawn so to you in the first place...your courageous gentlemanliness standing up to defend someone of whom you knew little, yet cared for so. It touched me, lit a spark in my heart, and renewed by faith in man. It's been so long, too long, to fully trust with all my heart the way I felt drawn to trusting you. There's no adequate way to express it, I feel, and I hope the photos I shared spoke those thousand words I did not. But again, from the bottom of my restored and hopefull heart, thank you so much for all you've done, not just for me, but for all women and persecuted people, for humanity itself which so often falls under the fear of reprisal to squeltch its true voice.

        Tom, you have renewed my heart and soul and like a songbird anew in spring, I am ready to live a brighter life again. Hopefully, we can share that brightness together.

        I love you. Truly. Less

    • because the share price is under valued as can be seen with the very low P/E ratio. The dividends are awarded per share and the share price is low. once the PPS goes up, and the dividend remains the same, the yield will go down. Incidentally, the dividend is well protected and BP is conducting a buy back program.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Because the market views it as being unsustainable
