BP p.l.c. Message Board

  • laeexv laeexv Dec 19, 2013 1:00 AM Flag

    BP heading for $60 in 2014.

    The aftermath of the Macondo spill is winding down. Government is grasping at straws by aggressively prosecuting the loss of a cell phone txt message. "Wanna have lunch?" Thats the worst "crime" they have been able to come up with. BP is hammering away on the exploration front and being very successful. Now all this company has to do is completely pull out of the US and sell their petroleum products in more profitable markets. Go BP. Future is bright.

      • You are so green you must be daltonic.
        I imagine you are a trust baby that ate too much lettuce and have never tried beef.
        The reason many people including your self use petroleum distilates is that it is very competent in doing work.
        Society as we know it including you ability to dissent is based on petroleum.
        The Goretex clothing you cherish is petroleum based.
        I personally find firewood better for heating than oil or gas for that matter and also prefer my organic vegetable over anything I buy at the store.
        However, I recognize that my luxuries would not be possible were it not for oil.
        BP is not worse than any of the others in the trade, so why the hate instead of benefiting from the fact that the market has unfairly discounted BP?
        It is sure to rise as oil continues to be used and the Macondo phantom wears out.
        It is not too late to shift horses.

    • "The aftermath of the Macondo spill is winding down."

      For who? Not the dolphins. A story in yesterday's NOLA Times discusses a new finding that 50% of dolphin populations in areas of the gulf are dying or diseased from the after effects of toxins from the Macondo disaster.

      Or do you mean it's "winding down" for BP? Well, wrong again. Judge Barbier has yet to decide is BP will be fined $1,000 or $4,000 per barrel for its misconduct. And that's just the clear water act penalties. Then, we get the oil pollution act penalties for destruction/clean up costs. Then, the civil suits proceed.

      I'd say BP is in about the top of the third inning on this one. Better brace yourself for a long day at the ballpark if you think you've seen the worst.

      • What is the cause of the illnesses found in wildlife? I would bet the cause is more likely the dispersants that Government forced BP to use rather than oil which is carbon based. Obviously, too high of a concentration of oil will harm wildlife. Does anyone on the board have an educated opinion about how the dispersants impact the environment?

      • ikki,

        there is no doubt wildlife suffered from the spill. it is a shame and unfortunate. still in all, that tragedy happened years ago. the dolphin study applies to 2011. since then, the gulf has recovered and BP played a huge role in that - much more than did RIG, HAL, Mexico, or the US govt.

        there are a multitude of injustices and atrocities being played out daily across the globe. it is very interesting that you find would spend countless hours over the course of many many months to attack BP on Yahoo finance boards, Seeking Alpha and the like. It isn't just the Macondo spill, you post anything negative you can find on BP. anything. \

        Why the obsession? You don't play BP stock short, you aren't an investor. Why do you persist in devoting yourself to the cause of attacking BP? What happened?

        Whatever it was... Get over it. move on. get help.

        also, you following me around the Yahoo Finance post boards leaving distorted and untrue posts is ludicrous and laughable. another example of a festering illness.

        seriously, seek professional help and begin to live life.

        your pal,

    • Not even that, take a look at the 50 year chart and that is conservatively pointing even higher than your $60.

      Sentiment: Hold
