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, "Following the comprehensive Q2 beat, we are upgrading our investment thesis on Chevron to a 'Hold'. The second-largest U.S. oil producer beat expectations amid the recovery in commodity prices, production gains and the success of its cost savings initiatives. Following outperformance in 3 of the last 4 quarters, shares of Chevron have risen +10% in the past year, outperforming the broader industry's +5%, while larger rival ExxonMobil has seen its scrip go down -8% over the same time period. However, with oil testing the psychologically-critical $50 threshold again, the near-to-medium term revenue outlook for Chevron – one of the most oil weighted majors – remains cloudy. Moreover, Chevron is still outspending its cash flow, making it dependent on asset sales. Hence, we advise investors to wait for a better entry point before buying shares in the oil major." (8/3/2017)
  • 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."
