What are Wall Street analysts saying about Occidental Petroleum stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Occidental Petroleum stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Occidental Petroleum benefits from increasing oil production in the Permian Resources and its focus on high-margin production region. The ongoing capital investment will further strengthen the existing operation of the company. Contribution from the Chemical and Midstream segment are going to drive its performance. Its decision to divest the lower margin oil and gas assets will be productive for the company over the long run. However, Occidental, similar to other oil and natural gas companies, faces the risk of cost overruns and development interruptions due to delays in drilling and other approvals. Its earnings are subject to the demand for commodities. The highly competitive industry and ongoing fluctuation in commodity prices are adversely impacting operations of the company. In last six months, Occidental Petroleum's shares have underperformed its industry." (4/18/2019)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We sympathise. Stronger dividend growth ahead? – Cash return growth, ideally via consistent and sustainable dividend growth, is key to our Renaissance thesis, and OXY is best-positioned among US E&P’s to deliver this dividend growth. In its slide deck, OXY highlights a cash return target of greater than $3.1Bn" in 2019. We think the company signals capacity for stronger dividend growth, and certainly want a much stronger effort than the nominal 1c/quarter of the past two years. We will be looking for additional detail on the call. Unconventional EOR – Demonstrating unconventional EOR commercial success in 2019 is a key to delivering on OXY’s 2022 $9.0Bn operating cash flow target. Expect the company to better define the opportunity set for enhanced recovery opportunities in Permian unconventional on the call." (2/13/2019)
