Why I think the BP share price could outperform the FTSE 100
Why I think the BP share price could outperform the FTSE 100. The BP plc (LON:BP) share price has experienced a period of ups-and-downs over the last decade. As well as having to deal with the financial crisis that plunged the FTSE 100 to its lowest level since the dot com bubble, the oil and gas producer has had to contend with a number of other issues. For instance, the oil spill of 2010 is a cost which, from a financial perspective, is still impacting on the company’s performance. Investor sentiment towards the FTSE 100 continues to be relatively uncertain at the moment, with the prospects for the wider world economy being less certain as a result of the increasingly protectionist trade policies if major economic players such as the US and China. This could cause challenges for a variety of FTSE 100 shares over future months in my opinion. Although Brexit may seem to be a major problem facing the UK economy, the global focus of BP and the wider FTSE 100 means that fears about global growth could have a much greater impact on their performance in future.
