Will the BP share price outperform the FTSE 100 index as the economy recovers?

BP BP

Investors have also become more cautious about the sector’s prospects, as governments around the world seem to be focusing on a green recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic. The BP share price could experience a lift from an improving world economic outlook. The firm is also making significant cost cuts, as well as major asset disposals, that could lead to greater efficiency and a leaner business structure that is more adaptable to change. Therefore, in my opinion, the firm’s forward price-earnings ratio of 13 using next year’s forecast earnings per share may undervalue the company. Sure, it could be a big beneficiary of a likely return to strong economic growth in 2021 and 2022. But its major strategy shift and the investment required could mean other stocks are more likely to outperform the FTSE 100 index over the long term, in my view. Therefore, there may be better opportunities for me elsewhere, given that I’m a long-term investor who is not particularly concerned about how stocks perform over a matter of months.

Boston Dynamics dog robot 'Spot' learns new tricks on BP oil rig

BP BP

Working on an oil rig operated by BP Plc (BP.L) nearly 190 miles (305 km) offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, the company is programming Spot to read gauges, look for corrosion, map out the facility and even sniff out methane on its Mad Dog rig. Adam Ballard, BP's facilities technology manager, said tasks performed by Spot will make the work on the rig safer by reducing the number of people. "We believe a lot of that up-front, remote work preparation can be done with a remotely-controlled robot... being able to pan, tilt, zoom and really understand the entire area in real conditions, real time," Ballard said. Boston Dynamics does not release terms of its sales agreements with companies, but the Spot robot model can be purchased for $74,500.

BP

It's been a sad week for Arco Platform Limited (NASDAQ:ARCE), who've watched their investment drop 10% to US$37.46 in the week since the company reported its quarterly result. Readers will be glad to know we've aggregated the latest statutory forecasts to see whether the analysts have changed their mind on Arco Platform after the latest results. Taking into account the latest results, the most recent consensus for Arco Platform from eight analysts is for revenues of R$1.32b in 2021 which, if met, would be a huge 39% increase on its sales over the past 12 months. In the lead-up to this report, the analysts had been modelling revenues of R$1.34b and earnings per share (EPS) of R$5.62 in 2021. So it looks like there's been a small decline in overall sentiment after the recent results - there's been no major change to revenue estimates, but the analysts did make a minor downgrade to their earnings per share forecasts.

FOR WEDNESDAY: BP shares: What I think the oil price means for now and 2021

BP BP

Veteran industry analysts say a Covid-19 vaccine won’t reinvigorate the oil price and the market could take years to recover. So what does this mean for BP (LSE:BP) shares? With a 6.3% dividend yield and with a share price near 25-year lows, there appears to be value in buying the FTSE 100 energy giant. But what’s the real story investors need to know? The oil price has now recovered to $45 a barrel from historic low, even negative, prices in April 2020. But demand is still far below supply. And the US Energy Industry Administration thinks it will remain flat over the next two years. This move has boosted BP shares and made for a slew of good headlines. But it’s a fact that a significant proportion of BP’s income still comes from selling oil and oil products like plastics to manufacturers.

BP’s share price is rising. Should I buy the stock now? - The Motley Fool UK

BP BP

Should I buy shares in the FTSE 100 energy giant for my own portfolio? Its goal is to pivot from being an international oil company to a global leader in the renewable energy space. To achieve its goals, BP is going to increase its investment in low carbon projects to around $5bn a year – 10 times what it invests now. RBC analyst Biraj Borkhataria estimates that BP will have to spend about $60bn to achieve its renewables target, assuming a 50/50 split between offshore wind and solar power production.
