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." (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)
