Brendan Wood International Investor Conviction Intel
Oil & Gas – February 2024

New York, NY, February 27th, 2024 (TopGun Press)

Below are some of the most topical Oil & Gas Stocks on the BWI Shareholder Confidence Index based on our daily chats with global investors. If you would like more detailed shareholder conviction intelligence on North American and European Oil and Gas companies, please contact Gordon Peck.

Cenovus: Cenovus’ stock has rallied early in 2024. Despite coming out of the gates hot, investors say there is still more room to run, rating them as one of the very top names in regards to their Price Appreciation Potential amongst the Global Oil & Gas companies on the BWI Index. Cenovus’ Ownership Penetration of the Panel has continued to increase in 1Q thus far compared to previous quarters. Investor confidence in Cenovus hitting their net debt target continues to rise. While investors are still waiting for them to hit it, they say the story is moving in the right direction.

Chevron: Commitment to Own Chevron continues to rise so far in 1Q among investors in the BWI panel. Investors are gaining confidence in the Chevron/Hess deal, with the majority viewing it as the right move strategically. Investor confidence in Chevron’s Strategy, Senior Management and Balance Sheet have all seen a noticeable increase in 1Q as of February 27th.*

*This is before the recent developments surrounding the Chevron Hess deal.

Parex Resources: Investor confidence in Parex Resources has been under pressure so far this year. Investors cite their disappointing results the past couple quarters as a deterrent. Investment Quality metrics such as: Strategy, CEO, Balance Sheet, Senior Management, Short Term Growth, Momentum and Price Appreciation Potential have all slid. According to investors, Parex’s focus on exploration, rather than development of their assets, has hurt them. Missing their production goals is a growing concern amongst investors.

Phillips 66: BWI Investor Confidence in Phillips 66 has remained relatively flat, despite an activist being involved. Investors say their issues with Phillips 66 lie with their operational issues not their Strategy. Investor confidence in their Long Term Growth has increased this quarter as investors have confidence there will be a positive resolution at the end of this for creating Long Term shareholder value.
