sarkasm: Investors Retreat From Oil Firms in Sign of Rising Skepticism share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 02/24/2020 | 03:49pm GMT By Sarah McFarlane Major oil companies are working hard to articulate a vision for their future, but the energy sector's poor performance shows that many investors aren't buying it. Companies including Royal Dutch Shell PLC, BP PLC and Total SA have launched plans to turn themselves into lower-carbon businesses. But with low oil prices pressuring the industry's economics and many investors saying it is too early to know whether the intended transformations will generate significant returns, there is growing skepticism on Wall Street over the sector's future. "Just saying that you're going to start a transition doesn't mean you're going to be successful at it," said Fabiana Fedeli, global head of fundamental equities at Netherlands-based Robeco Institutional Asset Management B.V. Major oil companies have limited room to maneuver after last year's lower oil and gas prices hit earnings -- and there is no relief in sight with oil prices down 16% since the start of the year after the coronavirus curbed demand. Energy companies are also under pressure from an expectation that U.S. shale's ability to quickly adjust supply will cap prices over the longer term. The uncertainty has made investors skeptical about whether companies can boost profits and transform through new investments while paying out hefty dividends. Energy has been the worst-performing sector of the S&P 500 for the past decade. "Valuations are telling us that investors are losing confidence in the oil and gas sector," said Nick Stansbury, head of commodity research at the U.K.'s largest asset manager Legal & General Investment Management. In December, the initial public offering of Saudi Arabian Oil Co., known as Aramco, mostly attracted domestic and regional investors. Many institutional investors outside the country passed on the world's largest listing, finding it too expensive, people involved in the IPO said. In another blow to the sector, some investors say some companies' transformation plans don't go far enough. On Shell's latest earnings call last month, Chief Executive Ben Van Beurden made almost as many references to the energy transition and the company's small low-carbon businesses as he did to oil and gas. But Sarasin & Partners LLP, a U.K. asset manager, sold around 20% of its stake in Shell last summer, expressing displeasure with the company's plan to increase fossil-fuel output over the next decade, in an open letter to Shell's chairman. "We were extremely disappointed that, despite your public commitment to act on climate change, [Shell] aims to deliver rising fossil fuel production to at least 2030. We do not view this as aligned with the Paris agreement," the letter said. The company has invested $2.3 billion in what is known as new energies, including wind and solar power, since 2016. Over the same period, it spent about $35 billion on its traditional business of exploring for, and producing, oil and gas. Shell's share price has fallen by about 25% in the past year. Another sign that oil stocks are falling out of favor: The dividend yields of companies including Shell, BP, Exxon Mobil Corp. and Norway's Equinor ASA have been rising. The higher yields are partly the result of falling stock prices. Some companies, including BP and Equinor, have raised their dividends in recent weeks. While shareholders benefit from high dividends, the companies' ability to maintain or raise dividends is at risk if oil and gas prices remain low and keep earnings under pressure. Most energy companies pride themselves on preserving their dividends. Exxon has increased its dividend annually for the past 37 years. Shell hasn't cut its dividend since World War II. "Lowering the dividend is not a good lever to pull if you want to be a world-class investment case so [we're] not going to do that," said Shell's Mr. Van Beurden. Last year, the weighting of oil-and-gas companies in factor-based indexes -- which enable investors to add exposure to particular attributes of a stock, such as growth and value -- fell in every category, including yield, value and profitability, according to data from global index provider FTSE Russell. Shrinking company valuations also meant the proportion of energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell to 4% in January, its lowest in at least three decades, having peaked at over 14% in 2009. Investors have also stopped rewarding the energy sector for amassing reserves of crude, in a sign that climate concerns are altering the way markets value oil companies. A study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that investors view undeveloped crude reserves as a reason to discount a company because of the risk that climate policies will curb future oil demand and leave some resources permanently underground and worthless. "I definitely think there will be some resources left in the ground from a carbon-footprint perspective," said Eldar Sætre, CEO of Norway's energy giant Equinor, speaking to The Wall Street Journal at a recent event in London.

the grumpy old men: The Best And Worst Oil Majors Of 2019 By Irina Slav - Dec 08, 2019, 2:00 PM CST Join Our Community Oil As oil traders eagerly await OPEC’s final verdict on the production cuts, and as Riyadh puts the final touches on the Aramco IPO, some of the largest players in oil and gas are about to wrap up one of their best years. Others, as it happens, could have done better. Here are the top and the bottom companies in oil and gas this year based on share price performance: Top Performers Hess Corp and the Guyana Windfall Hess’ shares surged by more than 50 percent in just the first eight months of 2019 and then continued up. This was thanks to one single prospect, and it wasn’t in the Permian. It was in Guyana, where Hess is a minority partner of Exxon, and the two have been making discovery after discovery offshore the tiny South American country. After the latest discovery, Exxon and Hess have tapped some 5.5 billion barrels in oil reserves. Just how important this is for investors is evident in the fact that the share price of the company has continued to rise despite the fact that it has been in the red for two consecutive quarters now. Shell and the Gas Wealth When Shell bought BG Group for $53 billion in 2016, becoming the largest gas company in the world, it attracted a lot of criticism. Now, thanks to its natural gas exposure and specifically its LNG exposure, Shell is one of the best-performing stocks in the industry in the year to date. It is also the biggest public oil company by production, which stood at 3.8 million barrels of oil equivalent per day at the end of the third quarter. The Anglo-Dutch major is not just one of the biggest LNG producers, but also one of the biggest LNG shippers globally. It is also among the top performers in terms of revenue, ranking second in the world after China’s Sinopec. Shell is also actively expanding in renewables and energy storage, preparing the ground for future domination in the energy industry, too. Total and the Smart Way France’s only oil supermajor Total has been among the top performers in the industry over the past five years despite the 2014 price crash. It was also among the top-performing oil stocks this year thanks to its continued strict cost discipline and its focus on diversifying into anything that is not oil while working to boost its oil output as well. This stood at 2.8 million barrels of oil equivalent this year, but it will be higher next year as the company recently started up a field in Brazil’s prolific pre-salt zone. Related: Will OPEC Really Risk An Oil Price Crash? The company has an extensive presence in LNG too, with 12 assets producing and another eight under construction. Total has LNG interests across the world, from Canada through Mozambique and Papua New Guinea to Russia. Its annual output is 40 million tons of LNG. Chevron and the Importance of Discipline Chevron is one of the biggest players in the Permian, and it shows. It is also one of the lowest-cost producers in the shale patch, and this gives it an additional advantage over its higher-cost competitors. Chevron has placed a special emphasis on its home shale operations with several strategic asset sales in Europe and Canada to better expand at home. To date, it has 1.7 million net acres in the Permian with reserves of an estimated 11.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent. The company has been pumping over 3 million bpd of oil equivalent for a year now. Yet unlike pure-play shale producers, Chevron has other operations, too, and these have contributed to its outperformance as well, including the Wheatstone LNG project in Australia. But Chevron has also been very strict about cost control and shareholder returns, which has paid off. At the other end of the performance scale are the companies that did not perform as well as their peers for a variety of reasons, including a lack of luck and the fickleness of the market. Bottom Performers Exxon and the Stubborn Share Price Exxon was among the four worst performers on the Dow Jones Industrial Average this year, with its shares only gaining about 1 percent since January. That’s in stark contrast to the performance of its Guyana partner Hess, and analysts have blamed this mostly on oil prices. Exxon, however, has been having other problems, too, notably with investors that doubt its long-term prospects in the face of growing environmentalist and regulatory pressure that recently culminated in a lawsuit in which the New York Attorney General accused Exxon of misleading investors about the effects of climate change on the sustainability of its business. BP and the Ghost of Disaster BP recovered remarkably well from the Deepwater Horizon disaster eight years ago even though it ended up saddled with a compensation bill in excess of $60 billion. Now, it is also facing dividend payouts that are higher than its earnings. Related: Morgan Stanley: Tesla Stock Could Hit $500 Debt is another problem that has dragged BP’s stock down this year. Because of slimmer profit margins and despite the company’s boasts, it breaks even at $50 a barrel. BP has been unable to pay down its debt consistently. Like its peers, the supermajor has been targeted by environmentalists and regulators to clean up its act, and that has not been helpful with investor confidence. The latest here was an accusation of “greenwashing” its business with a major ad campaign. Permian Independents and the Burden of Debt In what may be a twist, the last entry on the worst performers’ list is not a single company, but a group. A lot has been said about U.S. shale and its contribution to global oil supply growth. The companies responsible for this supply growth, however, are, for the most part, running on fumes. Debt-fueled growth has stripped most of the maneuvering space in case prices drop and, like back in 2014, has left many on the brink of collapse should the price situation change for the worse. Notably, this is despite stable prices and low production costs. This state of affairs has highlighted how interdependent the world of oil producers is. If the OPEC+ meeting today fails to result in deeper cuts, prices will tank, and U.S. shale majors will be hit harder than the integrated companies. This was made abundantly clear after Thursday’s OPEC meeting: the news of an agreement on deeper cuts moved prices only modestly and for a very short time. By Irina Slav for Oilprice.com

waldron: Credit Suisse cuts BP to ‘neutral’; from ‘outperform217;, prefers French peer Total; Shell ‘top pick’ 2019-07-11 by Proactive Investors Bp_sign_358 Credit Suisse has downgraded its rating for UK energy blue chip BP PLC (LON:BP.) to ‘neutral' from ‘outperform' in a review of the European oil sector. The Swiss bank also cut its target price for the FTSE 100-listed firm to 605p from 640p, with BP shares currently trading at 543.90p, down 0.5% on Tuesday's close. In the note to clients, Credit Suisse's analysts said they have switched their sector preference to Total SA, upgrading its rating for the French group to ‘outperform' from ‘neutral' as they think Total has the capacity to distribute more to shareholders than BP in 2021-25. The analysts pointed out that the calculate that the French firm could distribute about a 10.5% annualised yield (dividend and buyback) based on current market value, compared to BP's potential for about 8.5%. Overall, the Credit Suisse analysts said they prefer European oil supermajors to their US peers on valuation grounds. They maintain Royal Dutch Shell PLC (LON:RDSA) as is their sector ‘top pick', retaining an ‘outperform' rating, albeit while cutting the share price target to 3,090p from 3,175p. In late morning trade in London, Shell A shares were 0.3% higher at 2,596.50p

waldron: Https://www.nasdaq.com/article/tot-vs-cvx-which-stock-is-the-better-value-option-cm1144884 TOT vs. CVX: Which Stock Is the Better Value Option? May 08, 2019, 09:30:19 AM EDT By Zacks Equity Research, Zacks.com Shutterstock photo Investors interested in stocks from the Oil and Gas - Integrated - International sector have probably already heard of TOTAL S.A. (TOT) and Chevron (CVX). But which of these two stocks is more attractive to value investors? We'll need to take a closer look to find out. Everyone has their own methods for finding great value opportunities, but our model includes pairing an impressive grade in the Value category of our Style Scores system with a strong Zacks Rank. The Zacks Rank favors stocks with strong earnings estimate revision trends, and our Style Scores highlight companies with specific traits. TOTAL S.A. has a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy), while Chevron has a Zacks Rank of #3 (Hold) right now. This system places an emphasis on companies that have seen positive earnings estimate revisions, so investors should feel comfortable knowing that TOT is likely seeing its earnings outlook improve to a greater extent. But this is just one factor that value investors are interested in. Value investors analyze a variety of traditional, tried-and-true metrics to help find companies that they believe are undervalued at their current share price levels. The Value category of the Style Scores system identifies undervalued companies by looking at a number of key metrics. These include the long-favored P/E ratio, P/S ratio, earnings yield, cash flow per share, and a variety of other fundamentals that help us determine a company's fair value. TOT currently has a forward P/E ratio of 9.49, while CVX has a forward P/E of 16.48. We also note that TOT has a PEG ratio of 1.02. This popular figure is similar to the widely-used P/E ratio, but the PEG ratio also considers a company's expected EPS growth rate. CVX currently has a PEG ratio of 2.75. Another notable valuation metric for TOT is its P/B ratio of 1.09. Investors use the P/B ratio to look at a stock's market value versus its book value, which is defined as total assets minus total liabilities. By comparison, CVX has a P/B of 1.44. These metrics, and several others, help TOT earn a Value grade of A, while CVX has been given a Value grade of C. TOT is currently sporting an improving earnings outlook, which makes it stick out in our Zacks Rank model. And, based on the above valuation metrics, we feel that TOT is likely the superior value option right now. Want the latest recommendations from Zacks Investment Research?

ariane: https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/total-sa-TTA/share-news/Total-S-A-Total-Creation-of-the-Integrated-Gas/79638463 The profitable growth in the gas and low carbon electricity integrated value chains is one of the key axes of Total's (Paris:FP) (LSE:TTA) (NYSE:TOT) strategy. In order to give more visibility to these businesses, a new reporting structure for the business segments' financial information has been put in place, effective January 1, 2019 and organized around four business segments: Exploration & Production (EP), Integrated Gas, Renewables & Power segment (iGRP), Refining & Chemicals (RC) and Marketing & Services (MS). The iGRP segment spearheads Total's ambitions in integrated gas (including LNG, liquefied natural gas) and low carbon electricity businesses. It consists of the upstream and midstream LNG activity that was previously reported in the EP segment (refer to the indicative list of assets in the Annex) and the activity previously reported in the Gas Renewables & Power segment. The new EP segment is adjusted accordingly. The RC and MS segments are not affected.

waldron: BP, Shell both claim number one investor-returns spot By Kelly Gilblom on 3/29/2019 WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) -- "This ones on top, then that ones on top and on and on it spins crushing those on the ground," said Daenerys Targaryen from the hit television drama Game of Thrones. In the cutthroat game of global capitalism, there can be only one winner. Unless you’re an oil company. Both BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc are claiming the top spot for investor returns within their peer group from 2016 to 2018. That’s an important metric -- taking first place was a significant element in the doubling of Shell CEO Ben van Beurden’s pay last year. Confusingly, both companies are telling the truth. The two oil majors rated their performance against France’s Total SA and U.S. rivals Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. from 2016 to 2018. Yet their annual reports used different methodologies to determine total shareholder return. While both look at how much shares increased in value, assuming dividends are re-invested, they use different time scales to measure that change. BP takes the average share price for the last three months of each year and compares it. Shell does effectively the same thing, but the three-month period it uses straddles the end of the year and beginning of the following year. Both companies say their methodologies have existed for years, suggesting they aren’t just implemented because they yield convenient results. Fortunately, it’s not too crowded at the top. Exxon acknowledged it’s not leading on this measure over a 10-year period, while Total didn’t mention it. Chevron has yet to release its 2018 annual report.

florenceorbis: 19 viewsFeb 1, 2019, 07:50am Will The Majors Beat The Market In 2019? Wood Mackenzie Simon Flowers Contributor Wood Mackenzie Contributor Group Energy How to beat the stock market in 2019? The Majors will take on board the success most had in 2018 when the peer group outperformed an oil and gas sector beset by collapsing oil prices late in the year. So what worked last year and can we can expect more of the same? First, higher distributions to shareholders. The Majors spent the downturn shoring up finances, reducing investment, cutting costs and selling non-core assets to raise funds. At the start of 2018, most were set to cope at U.S.$50/barrel. When oil prices rose well beyond that in the early months of the year, there was cash to spare. Shell, Total and Chevron all began substantial buy-back programs during the year. This was the first important signal to investors: returning cash to shareholders ranked higher than growth expenditure. Bolstering defensive credentials seems an important step towards regaining investor confidence. Second, companies showed a measured approach to new investment in 2018. As cash flow has recovered, most have resisted the urge to re-invest. Capital expenditure is starting to pick up, which is no surprise after the steep cuts of the last few years and the lows of 2017. So far, most Majors have held any increase to single digits. ExxonMobil has been the very visible exception. We estimate it beefed up annual investment by 33%, or U.S.$5 billion, in 2018, embarking on a new investment cycle focused on its world-class growth plays in Guyana, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Mozambique and U.S. tight oil. ExxonMobil’s share price was the poorest performer among the peer group, seemingly underlining investors’ preference for the defensive. We expect the other Majors to proceed gingerly on spend again in 2019. Yet the number of final investment decisions is on the rise, suggesting the early stages of a broader new investment cycle. It’s certainly going to happen in LNG. Shell’s go-ahead for LNG Canada and BP’s for the Tortue FLNG project in Mauritania at the end of 2018 kicked off a new wave of big new projects in which ExxonMobil, Total and Eni will also be involved. Third, companies continue in their efforts to bolster portfolio resilience. The Majors have used M&A adroitly through the downturn to strengthen advantaged positions – BP’s acquisition of BHP’s U.S. L48 assets is the stand-out example of 2018. Accessing low-cost oil was also a feature last year, with almost 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent of resource secured in UAE (Total/Eni), Oman (Shell/Total), Algeria (Total) and Azerbaijan (Equinor). These contracts may be low margin, but a key attraction is the ability to generate cash at low oil prices. Fourth, production grew despite reduced investment since the downturn. We estimate production rose by 4% on average in 2018; and the outlook in the medium-term is impressive. The combination of exploration, M&A, asset upgrades and access to discovered resource opportunities has boosted forecast production to 2025 by 10%, or 2.4 million barrels per day, compared with how we saw things in 2017. This is some feat after four years of lower capital spend. It’s the second important signal to investors – there’s no pressing need to step up investment to sustain production volumes. The fifth theme jars with the defensive narrative, but it’s a good one, nonetheless – exploration is making money again. The Majors, like the rest of the industry, slashed spend on exploration after 2014. A more focused approach to prospect evaluation, lower costs and faster project delivery has led to much-improved economic performance. 2018 was the best year in a decade, with full cycle industry returns averaging 13%. The Majors weighed in with 3.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent of reserves discovered, one-third of the industry’s 2018 total. Eni and Total’s Calypso gas discovery in Cyprus and ExxonMobil’s Guyana oil finds accounted for well over half the Majors’ total. If stock market out-performance is the metric of success, defensive is winning. We’d expect the Majors to keep the winning formula in 2019 and return surplus cash to shareholders. But it’s not a sustainable strategy for the long run and, in the not-too-distant future, the Majors will rely again on new growth opportunities from exploration to keep the business ticking over. It’s reassuring to know they’ve got their mojo back. Simon Flowers Simon Flowers Contributor

waldron: 4733/5000 Total: Dividend and share repurchase 2018-2020Press release share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via email 0 0 08/02/2018 | 8:26 Total's Board of Directors reaffirms its priority to implement the Group's industrial growth strategy and announces the return to shareholder policy for the next 3 years: Proposed dividend at € 2.48 / share for the year 2017 10% increase in the dividend between 2018 and 2020 Up to $ 5 billion of share repurchase in 2018-20 Paris - The Board of Directors, meeting on February 7, 2018, approved the Group's financial statements for the 2017 financial year and reviewed the cash flow allocation policy, including the shareholder return policy, for the 3 coming years. Despite a volatile environment over the past three years, Total has successfully repositioned itself, achieving solid results in 2017 thanks to good operating performance and lowering its organic break-even point before Brent's dividend to $ 27 / b. Major investments over the past five years have resulted in strong growth in high margin production. The Group has also strengthened by investing on a counter-cycle and has acquired resources on attractive terms. It enjoys strong visibility on the growth of its cash flow and increased financial flexibility thanks to a debt ratio (net debt on capital) lowered to 12% at the end of 2017. Confident in the ability of the Group's teams to seize value-creating growth opportunities, the Board of Directors reaffirms the priority it gives to the implementation of the Group's long-term industrial strategy. In this context, the Board of Directors wished to give visibility to the policy of allocation of cash flow and return to the shareholder for the next three years. It has confirmed an investment program of $ 15 - $ 17 billion a year, has set a target of maintaining the debt ratio (net debt to capital) below 20% and maintaining a grade A rating and has also proposed the following measures: 1. Dividend increase of 10% over the next 3 years A dividend for 2017 of € 2.48 / share will be proposed to the Shareholders' Meeting, which corresponds to a balance of € 0.62 / share and a dividend increase of 1.2% compared to 2016 The quarterly installments for the 20181 financial year will be increased by 3.2% to € 0.64 per share, with the intention of proposing to the Annual General Meeting a dividend for the 2018 financial year of € 2.56 / share. The dividend target for the 2020 financial year would be € 2.72 / share 2. Redemption of shares issued without a discount under the share dividend option Maintaining the dividend in stock option to meet the wishes of certain shareholders but without discounting the issue price on the share price Repurchase of newly issued shares for cancellation. No dilution linked to the stock dividend option as of 2018 Immediate redemption of the shares issued in January 2018 as part of the payment of the second installment 2017 3. Up to $ 5 billion of share buybacks over the 2018-20 period The goal is to share with shareholders the benefits of rising oil prices Buyback volumes will be adjusted for oil prices This comes in addition to the repurchase of shares issued as part of the stock dividend 2017 dividend The Board of Directors proposes to the Combined General Meeting of Shareholders, to be held on June 1, 2018, to set the dividend for the 2017 financial year at € 2.48 / share, an increase of 1.2% compared to 2016.
