Chevron is a company that operates in the oil industry by exploring and extracting oil to be used as fuel and other purposes. Being in this industry certainly has it’s ups and downs as they are at the mercy of the price of the underlying commodity. However, with the recent news of OPEC slowing production into a highly saturated market, this certainly will help the fundamental numbers of the company. Also, be sure to look a gross profit when looking at these companies.

Taking a look at a recent 8-K filing, we can see the numbers from their third quarter operations. The company reported earnings of $1.3 billion for the third quarter of 2016, compared with earnings of $2.0 billion in the third quarter of 2015. Sales and other operations revenues in the third quarter 2016 were $29 billion, compared to $33 billion in 2015 third quarter. These numbers are expected to be lower due to the low oil prices, but as the price begins to increase, this will certainly help these numbers increase.

Taking a look at the chart, we can see that price has been on steady increase from the year 2003. In mid 2015, we can see price retraced quite drastically and has also rebounded just as nicely. This is what I want to see in a chart because this means people are entering and taking profits, where as with price just going up, people haven’t taken profits on a massive scale. Right now might be a good entry area if you’re playing the ABC structure on the way up. Overall, the chart is looking good and moving with the fundamental numbers.




Risks

Being in the oil industry certainly has risks that are similar across the board, but here are a few that are taken from the company’s most recent 10-K filing. Chevron is exposed to the effects of changing commodity prices. This is very true, and to go along with that, they are subject to supply and demand. A company who is not built well will bend under these conditions causing issues for the company and potentially investors. The company also states that the scope of business will decline if they are unable to successfully develop resources. In simple, if they are unable to get oil and other raw materials, they will lose money.

Conclusion

Chevron is a solid company and can certainly be a welcomed addition to many portfolios. The key here is to not be over exposed to this market as it does change rapidly depending on oil price. Also, compare other companies and there are a few others in the same market place. Lastly, you can consult an investing professional and they can help guide you to the right decision.
