Chevron Sell Side Expectations

Most sell side analysts (17 out of 28) rated Chevron stock as a buy, while the rest rated it a hold. The highest target price was $148 while the lowest target price was $116. Credit Suisse and Citigroup both believe that smart asset restructuring will be a key factor that will impact Chevron’s EPS growth. The former identified US shale plays (in particular, the Permian and Marcellus basins) as one of the areas where Chevron can deliver high returns in the future.

Exxon Mobil (XOM) Relative Performance

Exxon had underperformed the energy sector, like the rest of its peers in the industry. The Oil, Gas and Consumable Fuels industry in which ExxonMobil falls has been outpaced by the Energy Equipment and Services industry. Compared to price levels five years ago, the Oil, Gas and Consumable Fuels industry is down 56%, while Energy equipment and Services fell to 91% of its previous value. Comparisons amongst individual companies show ExxonMobil has fared better than other integrated oil companies, especially Europeans peers. On a five year performance basis, Exxon’s stock price witnessed an increase of 24%, while those of Chevron Corporation (CVX) and Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A) are up 58% and 20% respectively. The stock price of BP plc (BP) is down 4%.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) Dividends

Johnson & Johnson has been increasing dividend payments every year for the past 50 years. The company has paid $1.93 per share in dividends year-to-date. The most recent payment was $0.66 per share in 3Q 2013 which was an 8% increase from the same quarter in 2012. The company’s dividend coverage is on recovery after a 32% decline in 2011. The company’s payout ratio is 55% which is already quite high and increase the chances it will not increase dividends in the future. J&J has a decreasing debt/equity ratio putting the company in a position to increase its investments within the business and for further growth.
