bp holdings review Hong Kong shares have fallen 1.50 per cent in line with a big sell-off in mainland markets after Beijing introduced fresh measures to curb rising property prices in China. The benchmark Hang Seng Index shed 342.41 points on Monday to 22,537.81 on turnover of HK$82.84 billion ($A10.53 billion). The losses wiped out most of the gains from the previous session. China announced on Friday that homeowners who sell their properties will have to pay a capital gains tax of 20 per cent on their profits. Homeowners were previously taxed one to two per cent of the sale price. The government also ordered the central bank to raise downpayments and mortgage lending rates for buyers of second homes in some cities, and told local governments to limit non-residents from buying more than one home. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended down 3.65 per cent, or 86.11 points, at 2,273.40 on turnover of 143.0 billion yuan ($A22.66 billion), its weakest finish since January 11, when the index ended at 2,243.00. "Before Friday, there was still the question as to whether controlling the property market will remain a policy priority for the new government.

This post is being written as part of HedgeFundBlogger.com's Investment Securities Tool which analyzes the holdings of hedge fund managers. With all the commotion surrounding energy these days, it never hurts to track an energy focused hedge fund ran by none other than T. Boone Pickens. If you are unfamiliar with Pickens, he is an energy maverick and his fund returned 300% in 2005. He is a big advocate of Peak Oil Theory and runs an energy-centric hedge fund based in Dallas, Texas. Although he typically holds numerous positions in oil, he is also big on alternative energy (except ethanol) and has numerous holdings there as well. He most recently advocated a large natural gas position and has additionally made a big bet on wind energy. So, now that we've got a little background on Boone and BP Capital, let's see what they were up to. The following are BP Capital's current holdings as of June 30th 2008, as released in their most recent 13F filing with the SEC. The positions in this most recent 13F were compared to last quarter's 13F and here are the changes made to their portfolio: New Positions: BPZ Resources (BZP): 350,000 shares. This position is 0.48% of BP's portfolio. EOG Resources (EOG): 322,266 shares. This position is 1.9% of BP's portfolio. Tenaris (TS): 1,106,394 shares. This position is 3.88% of BP's portfolio. Devon Energy (DVN): 845,946 shares. This position is 4.79% of BP's portf...

Tesoro Corp.’s buyout of BP plc’s refinery in California, once finalized, will make the San Antonio petroleum company the biggest refiner in the state and also significantly expand its retail holdings.
Tesoro announced Monday its plans to acquire BP’s 266,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Carson, Calif. However, the purchase also includes a retail network of about 800 dealer-operated gas stations in Southern California, Nevada and Arizona as well as the ARCO and ampm convenience store brands.
These independently owned and operated stores currently buy an average of 245,000 gallons per month wholesale from the BP refinery.
This agreement with London-based BP is expected to bolster Tesoro’s existing retail network, which currently consists of more than 1,375 branded stations — including nearly 590 company owned gas stations that operate under the Tesoro, USA Gasoline and Shell brands.
The Carson refinery is located south of Los Angeles. Tesoro intends to integrate that refinery with its existing 97,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Wilmington, Calif. Tesoro also owns a 166,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Martinez, Calif.
The purchase also includes three marine terminals; four land storage terminals; four product marketing terminals; and more than 100 miles of pipelines. Tesoro will have pipeline access to Los Angeles International Airport.
The total deal is valued at $2.5 billion.
