JPMorgan upgrades Occidental to Neutral, sees increased dividend
On December 9, 2021, JPMorgan analyst Phil Gresh upgraded Occidental Petroleum to Neutral from Underweight with a price target of $39, up from $37. The company has shown “solid execution” throughout the COVID-19 downturn, managing a “fairly stable” production profile at minimal levels of CAPEX, Gresh tells investors in a research note. With net debt set to hit its $25B interim leverage target in early 2022, Occidental is positioned to return a modest amount of incremental capital back to shareholders, which is likely to be in the form of an increased common dividend, says the analyst. Gresh believes the stock’s recent underperformance suggests a valuation “closer to fair.”
