Energy stocks



Anyone else about to buy any of these soon? I'm zeroing in on CVX over XOM as it appears to be cheaper now, lower PE ratio, faster dividend growth rate, etc.

Any other companies I should consider over CVX?

BP unless you think there is much more damage to come out of the gulf incident or that BP truly is a horribly managed.

I like CVX over those too.


BP wasn't a bad call to jump into during the spill, but the upside is gone now IMO.

Unless you would want to diversify, go pretty far into CVX for your energy part of the portfolio

CVX is my top energy stock, too, FWIW.

Thanks everyone. I'm 30 so anything I buy I will likely hold for decades and just let it pile up. I was pleasantly surprised to look at CVX's 5 year chart to see they increase their dividends (sometimes substantially) every 2-3 quarters instead of the usual annual that most other blue chips stick with.

re: Energy stocks


I think a lot of the energy stocks are trying to increase dividends and stock buy backs as the returns on capital investment haven't been profitable lately.

re: Energy stocks


Being doing great with NOV and CAM.....

But one I really like is BTE (Baytex Energy). This is a Canadian company that has been wavering around $40, but pays an incredible $.20/month dividend (roughly 6%). Normally I'm skeptical of plays like this that pay an incredible dividend, but they have been pretty stable (Think they have paid around this for the last 4yrs).

I wouldn't look at P/E ratios as a factor when narrowing in on an energy stock.

RIG - looks like it could be undervalued and is paying a nice dividend again.

BHI - O&G services has been good to me through the years.
