Directors deals: BP non-exec picks up some shares

(Sharecast News) - Oil major BP disclosed that one of its non-executive directors had bought a large amount of shares on 30 September.


Amanda Blanc purchased 23,500 shares for 438.92p each, for a total transaction value of £103,145.94, the company said in a statement.

On 2 August, the oil major had posted an underlying cost replacement profit - its preferred measure of profit - of $8.45bn for the second quarter, up from $6.25bn in the first and $2.8bn in the second quarter a year earlier. This was well ahead of analysts' expectations of $6.8bn.

Its sector had been one of the top performers year-to-date and some market observers were cautioning that a failure to tweak a planned price cap on Russian oil exports by the European Union might result in a spike in the price of oil.

Yet just four days before, on 26 September, analysts at JP Morgan had downgraded their recommendation for the shares from 'overweight to 'neutral' and lowered their target price from 530.0p to 520.0p.
