The global energy complex continues to recover from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that speaks quite favorably to Chevron’s outlook. Management is committed to improving the company’s balance sheet strength going forward, which we really appreciate. Chevron’s free cash flow performance in the second quarter highlights the incredibly powerful positive effect the recovery is having on its financial performance. Share buybacks, in moderation, represent a good use of capital in our view (based on where shares of CVX are trading at as of this writing). With all of this in mind, we would like to stress that Chevron remains committed to its dividend (the firm moderately boosted its quarterly dividend during the second quarter of 2021 by ~4% sequentially). We continue to like Chevron as an idea in both the Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio.
