    If BP shares have “collapsed”, then so also have just about all the other oil majors by roughly equal amounts. So it must be a total collapse of civilization as we know it – or maybe not?

    If you look at the minors, JKX seems to have slipped 2.24 percent too – is this the “collapse” of a Ukrainian outfit?

    Oil futures are down, the stocks are down as a result – period. When the demand recovers so will the stocks.

    Sensational headlines make for good press but bad credibility.

    BP is under priced
