Shares of Occidental Petroleum Rank the Lowest in Terms of Forward Earnings Yield in the Integrated Oil & Gas Industry (OXY, CVX, XOM, BP, LUKOY)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Integrated Oil & Gas industry with the lowest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Occidental Petroleum ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 0.5%. Following is Chevron with a forward earnings yield of 3.1%. Exxon Mobil ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 4.8%.

BP follows with a forward earnings yield of 6.5%, and Lukoil OAO rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 10.7%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of BP on January 30th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $35.93. Since that call, shares of BP have fallen 5.8%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
