BP are getting their buybacks at bargain prices then. Not sure on the buyback numbers for this quarter, but it'll be interesting to see the sp once they've filled their boots. I'm holding out for 320p+, hopefully see that during the 2nd half of September.
Let's see if we can finish the day above 300p. The week too of course. The very low 300's seem hard to crack of late. I keep topping up around the 295p mark, hopefully seeing 310p very soon. I don't go along with conspiracy theories, but it'll be interesting to see where the sp goes once BP have completed the current buyback allocation.
Normally the day before ex-divident day (tomorrow in this case) 'should' see the current high. Sometimes two days before (as in today), but not always the case. Not totally out of rising on ex-divident day (Thursday), or hovering around the previous days close. I'm holding for 320's, so looking like I'll be getting the dividend.
**** Don't get ex-divident date wrong as many often do.
