BP's shares rose sharply after the company announced it would hit its net debt target of $ 35 billion in the first quarter of 2021.
BP said it received sales proceeds of approximately $ 4.7 billion in the first quarter. The company expects the proceeds of the disposal to "be at the high end of the previously announced $ 4-6 billion range" in 2021.
BP also stated that business performance was very strong in the first quarter of 2021, which allowed the company to hit its debt target.
The market's reaction to the news is so strong that BP plans to return at least 60% of excess cash flow to shareholders when the net debt target is met. The company plans to return that cash flow through share buybacks.
What's next for BP?
BP announced that it will provide additional information on share buybacks when the company releases its first quarter results on April 27th. While BP's shares have moved away from the lows of $ 15 levels hit in October 2020, they remain well below prepandemic levels.
Meanwhile, the oil market continues to recover and WTI oil is trading near the $ 60 level despite concerns over the third wave of viruses in Europe and the challenging situation in Brazil and India.
With that in mind, share buybacks can be seen as a good way to return capital to shareholders as BP would buy its shares on reasonable terms. Analysts believe the company will post earnings of $ 1.82 per share in 2021 and earnings of $ 2.65 per share in 2022, meaning the stock will trade at a forward P / E of less than 10.
Should oil manage to stay above the psychologically important $ 60 level, BP stocks have a good chance of gaining additional upward momentum as investors and speculative traders would be drawn to the upcoming share buyback program and cheap valuation.
