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.

Our Favorite Energy Giants Chevron and ExxonMobil are Focused on Returning Cash to Shareholders
Image Shown: Shares of Chevron Corporation (blue line) and ExxonMobil Corporation (orange line) are both up sharply year-to-date as of this writing. We liked what we saw in the latest earnings reports from Chevron and ExxonMobil. Both are focused on fiscal discipline and returning cash to shareholders in the form of dividend payments and share repurchases. Looking ahead, the outlook for the global energy complex is quite bright, and we continue to be huge fans of both Chevron and ExxonMobil. Please note we also include Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund ETF as an idea in the Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio to gain diversified exposure to the recovering global energy complex.

Schlumberger Recovering, Outlook Bright
Image Shown: Shares of Schlumberger NV are on the upswing, though the company’s stock price remains far below levels seen before the COVID-19 pandemic. On October 22, the oilfield services giant Schlumberger NV reported third-quarter 2021 earnings that missed consensus top-line estimates and matched consensus bottom-line estimates. The company’s business continues to recover as oil & gas investment activity is picking up steam around the globe after getting decimated last year in the face of the coronavirus (‘COVID-19’) pandemic. Looking ahead, Schlumberger expects significant improvement in its mid-cycle financial performance from current levels, aided by major cost structure improvements embarked on last year.

Booming Natural Gas Prices Great News for Chevron and ExxonMobil
Image Shown: Chevron Corporation – August 2021 IR Presentation. Natural gas prices in the US measured by the Henry Hub benchmark based in Erath, Louisiana, have surged higher over the past several months. This is partially due to the slowdown in domestic oil & gas development activity that occurred back in 2020 in the wake of the coronavirus (‘COVID-19’) pandemic and low crude oil prices. Though crude oil prices, measured by the domestic WTI and international Brent benchmarks, have since recovered, that has not resulted in domestic drilling activity returning to levels seen in 2019, though development activity has recovered somewhat. Henry Hub futures are trading north of $5 per million British thermal units (‘MMBtu’) through February 2022 as of this writing, dropping just below $5 per MMBtu for March 2022 deliveries.

Chevron Investing in Biofuels and Hydrogen
Image Source: Chevron Corporation – August 2021 IR Presentation. We are huge fans of Chevron’s dividend growth potential in the wake of the recovery seen in raw energy resources pricing year-to-date. Shares of CVX yield ~5.6% as of this writing, and we expect Chevron will steadily grow its payout going forward, aided by its promising free cash flow growth trajectory.
