The stock price shot up ..up ..up and never down even as the well continued to gush. WHY.. one good reason was the 4 to 1 leaverage given via WEEKLY OPTIONS on each share that was introduced July 4th on that stock and BP was the first ever company stock ever to get what amounts to 52 "months" in a year . That pre-enptive move was a driving factor for the Lybian's and investment banks to buy it up and not only get an increased share price but multiple options contracts as multiplyers to thier gain . That was a great way to "break the short-sellers" and float the share price on 4:1 leaveraged call contracts . Pure and simple manipulation .
