Brendan Wood International Investor Conviction Intel – Global Oil & Gas

June 10th, 2024 by TopGun Press

The first 5 months of the year has revealed relevant findings. Below we outline some findings on the most topical Oil & Gas stocks on the BWI Shareholder Confidence Index based on our daily chats with global investors.

ExxonMobil: While Exxon remains one of the most well owned stocks in the Energy sector from an investor penetration standpoint, investor conviction has declined slightly from 1Q. Investor enthusiasm about Pioneer being integrated is still apparent however some of the excitement has dissipated from the previous quarter. Investors have perhaps shifted their attention to competitors such as Chevron and ConocoPhillips given recent acquisitions.

Eni S.p.A: From lower levels, Investor Confidence in Eni thus far in 2Q has increased more than any other Oil & Gas company in the BWI Index. Investor ratings of Eni on all investor confidence metrics improved. The most significant improvements included: Board, Management, Strategy and the Momentum of Investor Confidence. Investor Commitment to Own Eni has seen a sharp uptick this quarter bringing it back in line with the sector. (Click here for some of the Intel on Eni).

EOG Resources: The Momentum of Investor Confidence in EOG Resources has declined sharply over the past 4 quarters. Investors are losing confidence in the Strategy from where it was a year ago. Other large players in the space have made acquisitions to bolster their inventory while EOG has not.

Suncor Energy: Suncor’s recent Investor Day has been a bright spot according to some investors. Investor Commitment to Own Suncor is on the rise so far in 2Q, bucking a 4 quarter decline. Investors say that Suncor has provided a really good blueprint for the next several years. Investor fear around Suncor’s inventory also has been less prevalent among those in the BWI Panel this quarter.
