What are analysts saying about Chevron Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chevron Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For more than three years, Chevron has seen its stock price decline precipitously, as the commodity downturn has taken its toll on the entire industry. Since July 2014, shares of the No. 2 U.S. energy producer have dived 20% - a significant fall considering its status as a ‘traditionally defensive stock’. Consequently, with oil and natural gas prices collapsing, the U.S. energy major’s upstream division’s revenues, earnings and cash flows have taken a beating. Moreover, Chevron is still outspending its cash flow, making it dependent on asset sales. In the wake of weak industry sentiment and apprehensions of more punishing times ahead with future cash flows drying up, we see little reason for investors to hold the stock." (7/17/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "The messages from Chevron's analyst meeting were in line with expectations: the cash cycle is improving; capex is being tightly controlled; production growth will accelerate; and Permian will be a key growth contributor, rising to 325-450 kbde by 2020." (3/8/2017)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We have focused on Chevron's 20+ upstream and new growth investments, including the Permian. These assets are forecast to deliver production, margin, and cash flow growth, while forecast capital investment is decreasing and becoming increasingly more flexible." (9/12/2016)
