06:06 EDTBPBP sees $1B in group-wide restructuring charges over coming year
"Although the current environment is challenging, BP is well-positioned to respond and manage our Upstream business for the long term,” said Upstream CEO Lamar McKay. “We expect to see growth from our conventional and deepwater assets and an increasing contribution from gas. And we also have a quality pipeline of opportunities that we believe are capable of extending underlying growth well beyond 2020. Our focus throughout will remain firmly on safe operations, execution efficiency and greater plant reliability.” BP also said that, as part of its wider ongoing Group-wide programme to simplify across its Upstream and Downstream activities and corporate functions, it expects to incur non-operating restructuring charges of circa $1B in total over the next five quarters, including the current quarter. Details of these charges and further guidance on the program are expected to be given with each quarter’s results. Across the Group, BP has said it will be looking to pare or re-phase capital expenditure without compromising safety or future growth. In October, BP told investors this could result in reductions of $1B-$2B in capital expenditure across the Group in 2015 against guidance of $24B-$26B laid out in March. This will be reviewed further as part of the 2015 plan, recognising the current outlook for oil prices. Between now and 2020, the Upstream team’s focus will be on delivery, through safe and reliable operations, strong execution in the existing base business, and the start-up of a suite of new projects which are expected to be capable of adding over 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day of net incremental production to BP’s portfolio by 2020. BP will also be progressing opportunities expected to continue to drive underlying growth into the next decade as it builds out its well-established conventional and deepwater oil positions and a distinctive and material portfolio of gas options.

10:20 EDTGOOGYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.

As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The firm lowered estimates slightly below the Street due to lack of product catalysts, search maturity, and margin pressure from investments. BofA/Merrill is also cautious on online advertising growth given increased regulatory risk in the EU, potential Facebook (FB) competition, share loss from social growth, and a strong Apple (AAPL) product cycle. Price target lowered to $580 from $600.
