Chris Karlin of Aquitania Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on BP (UK: BP, US: BP) at Best Ideas 2021.
BP is one of the world’s major oil companies. Energy companies in general have fallen out of favor among investors for several reasons, including both the shift towards factoring environmental costs and benefits into the investment decision process and the shift towards less capital-intensive, higher-growth businesses.
BP offers both a short-term opportunity as an effective hedge against many risks present in exuberant equity markets as well as a long-term opportunity for substantial rerating as it transitions into a sustainable energy company.
BP is one of the lowest-risk ways to gain exposure to renewable energy given its ability to self-finance the transition. Chris views BP as uniquely positioned to help protect and grow capital over the next several years.
