    Shale Stocks Surge as Crude Oil Spikes After Saudi Attack

    (Bloomberg) -- American shale producers, one of the worst-performing segments on the stock market this year, jumped Monday morning after an attack on a Saudi Arabia oil production facility over the weekend sent crude prices soaring.Whiting Petroleum Corp. surged as much as 41%, the most on record, while Apache Corp. and Marathon Oil Corp. were among other names to post strong gains in New York. The bonds of companies including Whiting and California Resources Corp. also climbed after the global crude benchmark clocked the biggest advance in dollar terms since futures started trading in 1988.State energy producer Saudi Aramco lost about 5.7 million barrels per day of output on Saturday after 10 unmanned aerial vehicles struck the world’s biggest crude-processing facility in Abqaiq and the kingdom’s second-biggest oil field in Khurais.While the attack was seen as good news for U.S. producers, refiners dropped since the bulk of American facilities rely on heavy crude supplied by countries including Saudi Arabia. PBF Energy Inc. fell as much as 10%, while Valero Energy Corp. dropped 7.3%.Shale ReliefThe spike in oil prices offers relief at a critical time for U.S. shale producers, which have seen investors flee after the sector largely failed to generate shareholder returns while rapidly growing output.At the end of last week, independent oil drillers had fallen 25% in the preceding 12 months. Some smaller explorers have filed for bankruptcy or been forced into restructuring their debt. A series of issues -- reduced flow from wells drilled too close together, low oil and gas prices, and pipeline limits -- have forced producers to slow their growth plans.The companies that gain the most from the uptick in prices will likely be U.S. producers with sizable short interest, including Apache, Continental Resources Inc., Devon Energy Corp. and Noble Energy Inc., analysts at Houston-based Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co said in a note Sunday.“Upstream should see some of the biggest gains as the increase in crude price will immediately flow through to improved cash flow,” Tudor Pickering said. “Given duration of outage, we suspect equity performance may be short-lived as investors continue to focus on imbalances in 2020 crude fundamentals.”Shale is lauded for its ability to quickly ramp up and down in response to global supply and demand. Still, crude produced in the U.S. is a different grade than that of Saudi Arabia, meaning refineries that rely on heavy crude won’t be able to turn to American supplies while Saudi Arabia output remain offline.It’s not yet clear how long the outage will last. Saudi Aramco officials are growing less optimistic that there will be a rapid recovery in oil production, a person with knowledge of the matter said. Saudi Arabia -- or its customers -- may use stockpiles to keep oil supplies flowing in the short term. U.S. President Donald Trump said Sunday he authorized releasing an amount of crude from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve “sufficient to keep the markets well-supplied.”(Updates with bonds in second paragraph)\--With assistance from David Wethe.To contact the reporters on this story: Rachel Adams-Heard in Houston at radamsheard@bloomberg.net;Tina Davis in New York at tinadavis@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Simon Casey at scasey4@bloomberg.net, Christine BuurmaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    BP's Alaska Exit Is a Sign of Oil's Times

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- There goes the other pipeline. Back in the day, BP Plc was sometimes dismissed as a “two-pipelines company.” This referred to two of its biggest positions: The Forties field and pipeline system in the North Sea and the Trans Alaska Pipeline bringing oil south from the Prudhoe Bay wells in Alaska. Forties was sold off in 2003 (the field) and 2017 (the pipes). Now, BP is leaving Alaska.In some respects, the $5.6 billion sale of the company’s Alaska portfolio is par for the course. BP has been selling assets for much of this decade in order to fund compensation and reshape the business after 2010’s Macondo blowout. More generally, selling mature oil and gas fields to smaller, independent companies planning to squeeze out more is a standard part of the development cycle. In 2003, Apache Corp. took Forties; the Alaska sale is to privately held Hilcorp Energy Co. To be an oil major is to be constantly ranking projects in terms of potential and deciding if you’re better off keeping them or flogging them.Yet the symbolism is inescapable. Alaska is embedded deeply in BP’s history and identity. Former CEO Lord John Browne, who led the late 20th-century mega-mergers that transformed BP from a two-pipeline company, kicked off his career there in 1969, just after BP struck oil. One of those big deals he ended up doing, the $33 billion acquisition of Atlantic Richfield Co. in 2000, was predicated in part on consolidating BP’s position in Alaska – only for antitrust regulators to force the sale of those particular assets to Phillips Petroleum Co. (now ConocoPhillips).Back then, BP was on the hunt for “elephants,” or giant oil and gas fields that typically took many years – and country-sized balance sheets – to develop. Hence Browne’s acquisition spree.The world has moved on. While producers still relish big discoveries, the intervening boom and bust in oil prices has made investors leery of big-ticket investments and more demanding in terms of payouts. Apart from, by and large, holding capex budgets in check, oil majors have been retreating from traditional strongholds, with Royal Dutch Shell Plc virtually leaving the Canadian oil sands, Chevron Corp. recently exiting the U.K. North Sea and Exxon Mobil Corp. putting its Norwegian assets up for sale. BP put its own Norwegian business into a joint venture in 2016.Meanwhile, they have been diverting cash to dividends and buybacks in order to keep investors onside – BP’s stock yields almost 7% – as well as directing more of their capex to shorter-cycle shale development.BP paid BHP Group Plc $10.5 billion in cash for its shale assets last year. Besides reducing BP’s leverage at a dicey time for oil prices, the Alaska deal can be seen as swapping out of an old, conventional position to help fund expansion in unconventional oil and gas. In that sense, selling Alaska throws the spotlight on these new assets where, like several of its peers, BP is trying to prove that the majors’ scale – which worked in such places as Alaska – can also be an advantage in shale.Alaska is viewed by some as a growth area, particularly – with grim irony – as climate change and the energy-dominance aspirations of the current U.S. administration open up more of it for potential development. However, as a sensitive, remote and challenging environment, it carries extra risks and costs for producers, including the potential for future administrations to restrict activity there again. The state’s oil boom truly began when the panic of the 1973 oil shock swept aside opposition to the construction of the Trans Alaska Pipeline. Its future from here will be shaped at least in part by the challenges of excess oil and associated emissions.Faced with this much change and the need to adapt, there really can be no sacred cash cows.To contact the author of this story: Liam Denning at ldenning1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Mark Gongloff at mgongloff1@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Liam Denning is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering energy, mining and commodities.

    7 Energy Stocks to Sell Now, and Where to Buy

    If you invested in energy stocks during the 2010s, only to see oil prices go from $50 to $100 - and back again…then you know how erratic the sector can be.The bad news is that it's not just energy stocks: Volatility is here to stay for the market in general. I mention this because I've talked a lot about income investing lately. And energy is certainly a place to find high yields. In fact, many energy investments HAVE to pay high yields due to their tax structure, such as the master limited partnerships (MLPs).But as attractive as a high dividend yield sounds, chasing dividend yields alone can be downright dangerous.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsStocks are not like Treasury bonds or a savings account: There's no guarantee that you will get your money back. There's also no guarantee that company will continue paying a dividend. If you choose poorly, you could lose your capital as the stock price falls. Or, that nice juicy dividend could be slashed.In most cases, dividend yields are tantalizingly high for a reason (the stocks are cheap and rightly so) - and are simply not supported by the fundamental earnings power of the business. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On Given that a dividend yield is a function of the company's annual dividend and its stock's current price, it very often tells you more about the latter than the former.Even a mediocre dividend can suddenly produce a high yield if the stock price falls off a cliff. It's one of the pitfalls we avoid in Growth Investor when seeking yield - and a good reminder to always do your homework before investing.So, when hunting for the next best dividend stocks, not only do you want ones with stable, growing dividends, but you need companies that consistently deliver sales…and positive earnings.Unfortunately, that's not the case with a lot of energy stocks right now. Many of these companies are not well-diversified, and thus extremely vulnerable to the geopolitical and supply/demand disruptions that plague the sector.And to show you what I mean, I'm sharing a list of energy stocks that are rated D or F in both my Portfolio Grader and Dividend Grader. So, neither the fundamentals nor dividend trends are stacking up in their favor, making them automatic sells.Below are 7 energy stocks you won't want to go anywhere near.Company Symbol Industry Yield Dividend Grader Score Portfolio Grader Score Apache Corp. NYSE:APA Oil & Gas Production 4.56% F F Enable Midstream Partners NYSE:ENBL Oil Refining/ Marketing 10.54% D D Murphy Oil NYSE:MUR Oil & Gas Production 5.45% F D Noble Energy NYSE:NBL Oil & Gas Production 2.27% D D PBF Energy NYSE:PBF Oil Refining/ Marketing 5.51% F F Permian Basin Royalty Trust NYSE:PBT Oil & Gas Production 9.17% D D Targa Resources NYSE:TRGP Oil Refining/ Marketing 10.24% F D OK, well that's the bad news. So where SHOULD we invest?Well, I'm a numbers guy, and I've developed a tried-and-true method for assessing any stock available. And today, I see clear opportunities as well as threats.The good news is that the "smart money" on Wall Street knows this - and is showing a clear preference for "Bulletproof" stocks. They've already tipped their cards by pouring their capital into these particular stocks. And the buying pressure that results from this is exactly what my Portfolio Grader system is designed to spot!Having spent time on Wall Street, these big institutional investors quickly learn that you need dividends to grow a portfolio over time. The income really helps smooth over the rough patches.Dividend growth stocks are especially important today - when the global bond market is just going haywire:We've got falling and even negative yields overseas. But as investors retreat to U.S. Treasuries, it's causing bizarre effects here, too. Just look at what happened on Wednesday, when the two-year Treasury actually began to yield MORE than the 10-year Treasury!And even the 30-year Treasury can't be relied upon for good yield anymore. On Thursday, its yield dropped below 2% for the first time ever.So - whether you're managing big institutional cash, or your own portfolio - you're going to need what I call the Money Magnets.These companies are in the opposite position of the energy stocks we looked at before: Not only did these stocks earn an A in my Portfolio Grader, thanks to strong buying pressure and great fundamentals…The stocks also earn an A in my Dividend Grader. These stocks are able to pay great yields - and have the strong business model to back it up!All in all, I've got 27 strong dividend growth stocks for you, almost all of which yield more than the S&P 500. These stocks are poised to do well as we continue to see international capital flow to the U.S. markets. Click here to see how I found these stocks, and how you can get great performance out of YOUR portfolio - come what may.Louis Navellier had an unconventional start, as a grad student who accidentally built a market-beating stock system -- with returns rivaling even Warren Buffett.
