It would be good if some total Industry ratios are presented such as: profitability, liquidity, efficiancy and leveradge ratios. This way total comparison may be done.
As a Wiki, we encourage users like yourself to be proactive and add metrics that they would find interesting, for the betterment of the overall community.
Please feel free to edit the article to add such data.

I think this is an excellent article about BP. My suggestions are to just clean up a few discrepencies to make it read smoothly. I am a little confused on BP's prospects for finding new supplies. At the beginning it states reserves are declining. In the middle of the article is an outline of several new projects. Then at the end of the article more is said about dated/old reserves. It would be easier to follow if the pros and cons of BP's exploration success were put is one section. A small section says the company is mainly focused on high margin end user products. I doubt that is the "main" focus of a mega-large vertically integrated oil company like BP, but I am sure they would like to increase profits in that area. Some rewording would clarify. Finally, Use the WikiCharts to keep us readers updated on the latest news. It is always my first stock when reading about a company.
The beauty of Wikinvest is that it is a user-edited resource. I could do all the research, add new data, etc....or you, an external user, could do the same and build up your reputation on the site. Every word you contribute to an article gives you user points and builds up your ranking. I assume you know this, since you're already a Senior Director and one of our top contributors. Since you have written so much on other pages, why not throw your two cents into the article, rather than onto the discussion page?
Thanks for Contributing,
