Are We About To Lose Bp?

Recommended Posts

I don't really know if it's relevant, but, last time I looked, BP's share price was doing okay today. Up about 7-8% I think it was[1].

[1] I suppose if I wasn't being so lazy, I could check to see what's going on with it now... ;)

We lost it in the 80s when it was privatised.

Think it's still about 40% British owned. (40% American and 20% other).

Some of the wealth is still returning to these shores.

Some of the wealth is washing up on American shores too...

This sums up HPC. When I dared suggest a couple of weeks ago BP was a good buy I was met with the usual tirade of people who can't see past a few day's, the same people who probably said don't touch RBS with a bargepole. The amount of money people lose through opportunity cost on HPC could easily pay for the whole of The Gulf Of Mexico cleanup operation!

To be fair, a couple of us thought it was a good buy. I bought in too early before the 300 floor, and since then I have bought in two more times. Not expecting to make a fortune on it, just hoping to off-set some of what I am losing as interest on savings.

Perhaps you are mistaking the most vocal view for the most popular?

You do see it when people came asking for advice. If you read some posters' views and think they know what they are talking about you would never, for example, buy a house. If a three bed semi was £5k there would always be somebody saying it was over-valued and you would be throwing your money away unless you waited until it was £2k.

I did a survey last week on house price exepctations and one of the replies was that anybody who wasn't expecting >50% drops was a bull :blink:

Apparently over 50% of BP shares are owned by Americans. If the US government decides to seize BP's assets owned by Americans, as an emergency measure, the BP will be US controlled.

When Obama was on his anti-British rant/smokescreen, one of the major news programmes (C4 news?) highlighted that the majority of the tax revenue paid by BP went to the US government and BP employ more in the US than the UK, so pretty much a US company already!
