(A Top Pick Dec 27/18, Up 3%) Oil prices continue to struggle, but BP pays a big, safe dividend. They generate great return on capital even at current oil prices. They also run fuel stations in Europe and sell natural gas products, not just oil. They're a leader in using data to make equipment use efficient.

Huge cash flow. They made a big acquisiton of BHP in 2018 and their timing was impeccable. Pays a 5.5% yield that'll grow. They're a big investor in renewables. A cheap stock at 11x earnings. (Analysts’ price target is $50.32)

(A Top Pick Dec 27/18, Up 14%) BP is how he plays oil. It's the gold standard in oil operations. They've focussed on cost and discipline, using technology to improve recoveries and cost overruns. Even with $50-60 oil, they'll double their cash flow within five years. Pays a safe 6% dividend.

He owns this one and he likes their lack of exposure to WCS oil prices. It is good value here and he expects to see them continue to grow. He would prefer them to SU-T for this reason. Yield 5.8%

We had oil oversupply which pushed down prices. At these levels BP has an attractive yield. Good reserves and balance sheet. He's happy with their current levels.

The oil price is nearing its bottom, he thinks. $45 is the marginal cost of U.S. shale production. BP uses new technology and data to reduce their costs and boost productivity. Even if the oil price stays within $45-65, he thinks BP will still bring on more production. They can increase their free cash flow. Pays a decent yield. (Analysts’ price target is $49.30)

He still likes it. They got their cost structure down. It is a free cash flower with a 5% dividend. The dividend will remain if oil drops to $50. The balance sheet is in good shape.

(A Top Pick May 16, 2017, Up 20%) Lots of free cash flow which covers their dividend, unlike other companies that borrow money to. He expects dividend increases. They're actually investing big in renewables. Big oil is investing their profits in green because they see renewables as their future in 20 years as oil declines.

This was the big oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. The US changed the rules and applied therapeutic sanctions and retroactively wrote legislation. The company had to sell off some assets and slowly started to rebuild. European oil is starting to recover quite nicely and generally had a decent year. The company has started to go back into exploration, and is now starting to be followed by the other majors. Assuming the conditions of OPEC supply constraint remain, the Saudi/Aramco goes public, then longer-term we will see a higher energy price, but it won't be immediate. A company like this will do okay. Thinks it has a more upside. Prefers Royal Dutch Shell.

It is an ADR so she does not typically trade it. It has been out of favour, however. She is hesitant to jump into any energy stocks.

Compared with other integrateds?A company that makes money at $50 oil. Part of their business benefits from oil prices, petrochemicals and refining. They are earning their hefty 6% level dividend with their own free cash flow. These large integrateds are going to underperform if oil does really, really well. They are using their free cash flow to make intelligent acquisitions. Rising dividends are in the cards even if oil stays at $50.

The Macondo Gulf of Mexico disaster is now past and they have taken all the charges. They’ve rebuilt the company. The balance sheet is in very strong shape. With the cost structure where it is, even at these commodity prices, this company is throwing off lots of cash flow. Dividend yield of 6.7% is sustainable at current commodity prices. This is the cheapest of all the major integrateds. (Analysts’ price target is $37.50.)
