Why I think the BP share price could outperform the FTSE 100

BP BP +3 more BP BP RDSA TLW RDSB

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.

BP BP

For the active trader tendency of a security’s returns to respond to swings in the market is vital to know for investment. Beta is the gauge which made it clear and BP has 0.79 times beta (risk level) in relation to market or the other alternative benchmark.

Whereas its latest closing price kept its distance from the SMA20 at 1.89% and 4.64% from SMA 50 while it was Bullish 2.73% from the simple moving average price of 200 days.
