BP Not Weathering The Oil Slump Well At All

Well, if you're a patient little turtle, you can grab yourself a nice 7.5% yield on shares of British Petroleum (BP). Just gonna warn you up front here, don't expect to be getting much more for a while. The company has negative EPS, it's tangible assets have been cut down by 1/3rd in just two years, and cash on hand.. well, they still have some of that I guess. So there probably aren't any dividend cuts coming too soon. Dividend growth is pretty weak, though. Getting shy of 5% a year there. 

I'd probably stick with Chevron (CVX) or Exxon-Mobil (XOM) myself. But hey, nothing wrong with getting paid to wait, right?
