Not only is BP extremely profitable in the currency environment, but its stock is attractively valued and it has an aggressive capital return program that provides steady dividend income for investors and supports the stock price.

BP announced a $1.5 billion share buyback and reduced its debt load to $22.3 billion in the quarter.
