Chevron Vs. Shell: Chevron Wins By A Landslide

Chevron Vs. Shell: Chevron Wins By A Landslide

: Oct 20, 2020

Summary
  • Over the last 5 years, Chevron has consistently outperformed Shell.
  • On financial metrics, Chevron looks much better than Shell.
  • Shell’s share count goes up, Chevron’s goes down.
  • Chevron’s dividend continues to go up while Shell cuts its dividend.

Shell’s zero-emission goals will limit profit potential.

According to Seeking Alpha (see here), Chevron (CVX) has replaced Exxon (XOM) as the largest oil company by MV (Market Value). In many ways, this is more a race to the bottom than a race to the top with CVX falling 39% YTD while XOM is falling 52%.

Another oil company in the doldrums is Shell (RDS.A) (RDS.B) whose price has fallen by 56%.

Shell Plans to Cut Thousands of Jobs

Shell Plans to Cut Thousands of Jobs Amid Shift to Carbon Neutrality: What Investors Need to Know

Shell’s job cuts are just the latest unsettling news for Wall Street’s least-loved oil major (shares of Shell are down more than any other integrated oil and gas company so far this year).

The case for why the job cuts are the right decision for investors.

To say it’s been an off-year for big oil would be an understatement. Shockwaves of volatility and lower energy demand have rippled through global markets. An added threat is the increasing role of renewables in the energy mix as wind and solar companies continue to gain market share — and oil companies lose it. read more

Royal Dutch Shell: Energy Transition Woes

Royal Dutch Shell: Energy Transition Woes

: Energy Income Authority: Oct 8, 2020 High-quality income and growth plays in the energy space. Summary
  • Poor messaging from management, as well as an ill-prepared balance sheet caused in part by buybacks, has caused the European major a lot of pain.
  • Arguably, senior executives deserve to be shown the door. But even if that happens, expect the pivot away from fossil fuels to continue.
  • Is the move into Power and other “Green Energy” assets the right move? Maybe, maybe not.
  • This idea was discussed in more depth with members of my private investing community, Energy Income Authority. Get started today »

I often get asked why I don’t cover the supermajors all that often on Seeking Alpha. The answer comes down to a rather simple reality: time invested versus potential gain. Anyone that has followed my long / short book knows that whatever I take a stake in, I know inside out. Quite frankly, the sprawling operations of most majors coupled with competing against institutionals that have enough research analysts on the payroll to pack a local gymnasium makes it a losing proposition – or at least in my view. read more

Fossil Fuel Firms Not Doing Enough on Emissions, Funds Say

Bloomberg: Fossil Fuel Firms Not Doing Enough on Emissions, Funds Say

Laura Hurst: Wed., October 7, 2020, 8:55 a.m. GMT+1

(Bloomberg) — None of Europe’s largest oil, gas and coal companies are on track to limit global warming to within 2 degrees Celsius, according to a report by money managers overseeing more than $22 trillion.

Energy and mining companies have been under increasing pressure, from both environmental groups and their own investors, to demonstrate how their business models align with the Paris climate agreement and to show they’re taking action to curb their emissions. read more

Op-ed: A $100 billion Big Oil divestiture plan is coming

Op-ed: A $100 billion Big Oil divestiture plan is coming

Tore Guldbrandsøy, senior vice president, and Ilka Haarmann, analyst, at Rystad Energy   KEY POINTS
  • The largest oil and gas companies, including ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron and BP, are projected to sell a combined $100 billion in oil and gas assets around the world as they focus on top-performing regions, particularly the U.S. shale, according to a new analysis from consulting firm Rystad Energy.
  • Climate change and renewable energy investments are forces that these Big Oil firms need to respond to strategically, but their own carbon divestiture campaigns will be motivated by factors distinct from the push from climate activists. 

Energy transition has climbed towards the top of the agenda in the boardrooms of the world’s largest oil and gas companies. With electrification and renewable energy on the rise, Big Oil is striving to adapt to a transformation that could eventually render their business obsolete if they don’t latch on to the opportunities it brings. The result could be a massive sell-off of assets as the biggest petroleum players concentrate their oil and gas production to the countries where oil and gas is cheapest and easiest to produce. read more
