Exxon Mobil Surging Higher with Room for Upside
Image Shown: Exxon Mobil Corporation put up stellar results when reporting its second quarter earnings in late July 2022. Image Source: Exxon Mobil Corporation – Second Quarter of 2022 IR Earnings Presentation. Exxon Mobil Corp posted second quarter 2022 earnings that flew past consensus top- and bottom-line estimates. The tailwind provided by elevated raw energy resources prices, rising oil & gas production volumes, ongoing cost structure improvement initiatives, and strong “crack spreads” (refining margins) more than offset headwinds arising from its decision to exit Russia in March 2022 and foreign currency headwinds due to a strong U.S. dollar. Exxon Mobil is one of our favorite energy ideas, and we include shares of XOM in several of the newsletter portfolios as it offers investors a nice combination of dividend growth and capital appreciation upside potential. Shares of XOM yield ~3.6% as of this writing, and our fair value estimate sits at $105 per share of Exxon Mobil.

2022 Oil & Gas Market Update: “The Outlook for Crude Oil Prices Remains Quite Bullish”
In our view, the outlook for crude oil prices remains quite bullish which in turn should enable Chevron and Exxon Mobil, two of our favorite newsletter portfolio ideas, to churn out “gobs” of free cash flow over the coming quarters. Additionally, both Chevron and Exxon Mobil have substantial exposure to natural gas prices, in part through their enormous LNG export facilities in Australia, which should further support their cash flow generating abilities. We will caution here that a key downside risk the global energy complex faces is potential demand destruction as consumers adjust their lifestyles accordingly to reduce their energy and fuel bills. With that in mind, we have yet to see energy demand falter in a meaningful way, though we are keeping a close eye on the state of the global economy.

Newsletter Portfolio Idea Chevron Focused on Returning Cash to Shareholders
Image Shown: Newsletter portfolio idea Chevron Corporation is very shareholder friendly. We view its capital allocation priorities quite favorably. Image Source: Chevron Corporation – May 2022 IR Presentation. Our newsletter portfolios remain overweight energy names as these companies are well-positioned to ride out inflationary pressures and geopolitical turbulence while generating substantial free cash flows and returning “gobs” of cash to shareholders. We include Chevron Corp in the Best Ideas Newsletter, Dividend Growth Newsletter, and High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolios as the firm has placed a great emphasis on keeping its capital expenditures contained, improving its cost structure, and cutting down on its debt load while returning “gobs” of cash to shareholders.

Shares of Newsletter Portfolio Idea Exxon Mobil Are Booming Higher!
Image Source: Newsletter portfolio idea Exxon Mobil Corporation has seen its share price boom higher over the past year. We see room for additional capital appreciation upside potential going forward. Shares of Exxon Mobil Corp have boomed higher over the past year, and we see room for additional capital appreciation upside potential. Our fair value estimate for Exxon Mobil sits at $87 per share, though in the current raw energy resources pricing environment, the top end of our fair value estimate range (which sits at $115 per share) may prove to be a more pertinent gauge of Exxon Mobil’s intrinsic value. We are huge fans of the energy major and include Exxon Mobil in the Best Ideas Newsletter, Dividend Growth Newsletter, and High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolios. Shares of XOM yield a nice ~3.9% as of this writing, and its dividend growth outlook is quite bright in the current environment.

Chevron Buys Renewable Energy Group
Image Shown: Chevron Corporation is acquiring Renewable Energy Group Inc through an all-cash deal that was announced at the end of February 2022. Image Source: Renewable Energy Group Inc – October 2020 IR Presentation. On February 28, Chevron Corp announced it would acquire Renewable Energy Group Inc through an all-cash transaction. The energy giant is paying $61.50 per share in cash for each share of the renewable fuel producer through a deal with a total enterprise value of $2.75 billion when including Renewable Energy Group’s $0.4 billion net cash position. During the second half of 2022, the transaction is expected to close. We continue to like outsized exposure to Chevron in the simulated newsletter portfolios.

Evaluating the Exposure of Chevron and Exxon Mobil to Russia’s Energy Industry
Image Shown: Shares of Chevron Corporation (blue line) and Exxon Mobil Corporation (orange line) have skyrocketed over the past six months. Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp, our two favorite large cap energy firms included as ideas in the newsletter portfolios, have relatively modest exposure to Russia. Peers such as BP plc and Shell plc have publicly stated that they would effectively abandon their stakes in Russian operations, and there is a decent chance Chevron and Exxon Mobil will follow suit. Let's talk about the potential impact.
