    Today I took kids to a park roughly 30 minutes away. Roads, including interstate, were packed and we even got into a traffic jam; all cars were ICE and few hybrid, no EV. It truly feels as if there are more people than ever on the road shaking off the cabin fever. BP stock is trading as if oil consumption will never come back. The planned transition to non-carbon in long run is also not a bad idea. As David said below, "I couldn't give two hoots what type of energy BP produces, as long as it makes me money." 50 GW of electricity is roughly 15 nuclear power plants.

    Let's face it: even if Loon is right in his new green direction, his timing for touting this to investors couldn't be worse. He should have waited until CV was history, oil prices recovered and BP's stock along with it. This way he just poured oil (pun intended) into the flames of an already extremely bearish market in the midst of the CV slump. It just shows he has no market sense whatsoever.

    I bought at 25 dollars, so obviously at the moment my shares are down quite a bit, but I am still quite confident for the future.

    After such an extended period of irrational selling (this quarter is leaps and bounds better than the last) and coming from an extreme oversold condition, usually a big bounce comes. But we may be in uncharted territory, with the CEO of an oil company spreading doom and gloom predictions about the future of oil. Compare that to XOM executives who just gave a presentation, saying that they see no shift in demand patterns as most of the growth in the oil industry comes from developing countries where electric vehicles are non-existent, and they expect that to exceed whatever demand decline in the developed world. I'll add that the electric vehicle model is unproven and requires heavy government subsidies on the expense of taxpayers and creates a major pollution issue which may even exceed the carbon emissions benefit of electric vehicles.

    Why are longs complaining about ceo diversifying revenue? Do they not see that the public and gvmts globally are becoming down right hostile against oil now? Bp needs charging stations and less gas pumps. And yes coffee and grab-n-go business will be big for them. This isn’t a 2minute fill up. It’s a 30min session

    Should get a Press conference at some point soon to clarify BP business plan . Anything to stop the share price from bleeding dry . Selling off even when the overall Markets are going up .

    In the year 2050 gasoline engines will be banned. But since electric batteries cause as much polution to the environment, people will be required to own a bicycle and will receive even more tax credits for using a horse and carriage. Retirees on cruise ships will be required to take shifts paddling once the wind in their sails dies out. Passenger planes will be powered by Tesla’s batteries as an exception but taxes on flights will make it prohibitively expensive. Hot air balloons will be the transportation of choice for long distance travel.

    This way we will save our precious planet and undo the evils of technology and the modern world. Kids will learn in school about Ted Kazinsky as the visionary who tried to save the planet but was locked up by the FBI.

    Impressive job by market manipulators to keep this under $18.20 today - who are these Johnny Come Lately traders bidding up energy stocks today? There is coordinated trading to take them down to March lows, market strength has been an inconvenience I am sure. A bit of weakness and $18 falls like a hot knife through butter.

    The seemingly endless downward trajectory of oil stocks... it's really hard to believe that these stocks are below where they were in April when the entire world was in a lockdown and oil was in single digits..

    I understand wind and solar work fine as long as they are subsidized.

    Who's paying that?

    It has lost 47% of the share price since 12/31/19. How is this not a crisis? Where is the BOD?

    I'm extremely bearish on the markets right now but I feel like bp at this price doesn't have a lot of further downside potential even with a crash. maybe 20 percent down yet with easily 150 percent upside potential. if they can keep the dividend this is a buy

    always starts green then turn reds. So I guess wooohooo for this morning, we finally broke the trend, we managed to start red. Wait. Oh shoot, I guess that ain't good either. (sigh) oh well, maybe it will surprise us and end green

    BP pays real money in the form of dividends. A good stock to buy. A real company with beautiful gas stations. Good luck out-lawing gas stations.
