    Motiva could make further moves into petrochemical business

    Houston-based Motiva Enterprises LLC has reached a deal to buy a Port Arthur, Texas, petrochemical asset from Flint Hills Resources LLC, but it likely won’t be the last investment the company makes in petrochemicals. Motiva’s parent company, the state-owned Saudi Arabian Oil Co. — more commonly called Saudi Aramco — said at the end of 2018 that it planned to invest about $100 billion in the chemicals space over the next decade, said John Maselli, a senior research analyst for Wood Mackenzie. Saudi Aramco has already made a high-dollar move into the space with its $69.1 billion agreement to purchase a majority stake in Saudi Basic Industries Corp. “They’ve been investing a lot, but $100 billion is a lot of money, and they’ve still got a ways to go,” Maselli said.

    Fill Up on Exxon Mobil Stock Now for an Imminent Rebound

    With the price of WTI crude oil having traded in a range between $50 and $60 for quite some time, it's easy to forget that the price is down around 27% since peaking last October. Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) stock isn't exactly outperforming either, as it's down 12% for the past 12 months and has trailed competitor Chevron (NYSE:CVX) by 11% during that time.Source: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com That lagging performance has turned some analysts bearish on Exxon Mobil stock, but I don't see things like most other people do. If anything, the price differential between XOM stock and its competitors is one of the strongest reasons to start a long position in one of the petroleum industry's biggest and best-known mega-corporations of our lifetime. Buy and Hold XOM Stock for Terrific DividendsIt always bothers me when analysts completely ignore dividends and only focus on the price action of a stock. Dividends, as Warren Buffett has reminded us many times, are one of the keys to long-term wealth accumulation for smart investors. And if any company deserves to call itself a dividend aristocrat, it's Exxon Mobil.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Undervalued Stocks With Breakout Potential For a basis of comparison, we can compare the dividend payout of XOM stock to its chief rival, CVX. Chevron's dividend yield is quite decent at 4.1%, but Exxon Mobil is the clear winner in that category at 5%. It's also worth noting that while Chevron's dividend payout ratio (defined as the company's dividends per share divided by its earnings per share) is a perfectly respectable 58%, Exxon Mobil wins again with a dividend payout ratio of 76%, which is simply outstanding. An Analyst Weighs inIt's all over the financial news that famous British bank and analyst firm Barclays has given Chevron an overweight rating while they've only given Exxon Mobil stock an equal weight rating. That's the equivalent of declaring that CVX is a much better buy than XOM stock right now. I don't concur with Barclay's unfavorable comparison of Exxon Mobil as a long-term portfolio allocation.In defense of her position, Barclays analyst Jeanine Wai explained in a note that Chevron is well-positioned to return significant free cash flow. This brings me back to my previous point, which is that a very healthy 5% dividend yield is precisely what I would call a "significant" flow of cash to shareholders. This is cash deposited into my brokerage account, which I will gladly collect and reinvest right back into more XOM stock.Wai also projects that drilling in the Permian Basin will provide positive cash flow for Chevron in the first quarter of 2020. However, Exxon Mobil is also aggressively drilling in the Permian Basin, with a cash-flow-positive target of 2021. The target is bit later than Chevron, but also a realistic timetable. In any case, no one is doubting that Exxon Mobil has plenty of capital available to drill in the Permian, and the company is planning to produce the equivalent of around 1 million barrels of oil from the region per day. Clearly, there's no slowing down for XOM regardless of the stock price. The Bottom Line on Exxon Mobil StockAs Wai correctly observed, "Energy is currently one big 'Show-me Story,'" suggesting that it's up to each company individually as well as the sector as a whole to prove themselves and justify higher stock valuations. Just as oil itself has been under price pressure in the past year, XOM stock needs to dig itself out of the hole it's created. And that's going to require lots of capital and a strong focus on the Permian. A rebound in the price of crude oil certainly wouldn't hurt, either.I believe that all of these issues will resolve themselves in the near future and Exxon Mobil stock shares will rebound sharply. Most importantly, unlike a certain British analyst, I don't feel the need to compare XOM to any of its rivals. It's a great company on its own, and shareholders can purchase shares with confidence, enjoy the dividends and profit handsomely when the oil price eventually breaks out.As of this writing, David Moadel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Dow Jones Today: Trump’s Twitter Targets the Fed … Again

    Usually, a headline like that would spell doom for stocks, but that wasn't the case Monday. Major U.S. equity benchmarks rallied even as President Donald Trump had some, shall I say, "words of encouragement" for the Federal Reserve."The Fed Rate, over a fairly short period of time, should be reduced by at least 100 basis points, with perhaps some quantitative easing as well," said the president on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). "If that happened, our Economy would be even better, and the World Economy would be greatly and quickly enhanced-good for everyone!"President Trump has a long history of moving markets via Twitter, but that wasn't necessarily the case Monday when it comes to the dollar, which he has long complained is too strong. The Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (NYSEARCA:UUP), which tracks the greenback against a basket of other major currencies, closed modesty higher and just a third of a percent below its 52-week high. UUP is up about 2% this month, indicating Fed rate cuts aren't always the elixir to quell a strong dollar.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On Despite the dollar firming again today, the plenty of export-sensitive sectors and individual names rallied, helping the Nasdaq Composite to a gain of 1.35% while the S&P 500 added 1.21%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average started the week higher by 0.96% with just two of its 30 components finishing lower on the day. Be Careful With These Dow WinnersTwo of the best performers in the Dow today may require some caution. Sure, it was nice to see Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) rally after the network gear maker was drubbed last week following disappointing guidance on its earnings call, but Monday's bounce may be one of the dead cat variety.Similar caution may be warranted with chemicals maker Dow (NYSE:DOW), which was the second-best Dow stock today behind Cisco. Again, it's nice to see a cyclical, tariff-sensitive name in the green today, but the stock was downgraded last Friday to "neutral" by Bank of America Merrill Lynch with that bank also paring its price target on Dow shares to $44 from $55.Of the 17 analysts rating shares of Dow, just six have "buy" ratings on the name while 11 have the equivalent of a "hold" on the stock. DJIA Earnings NoteI've been mentioning The Home Depot (NYSE:HD) recently because the company reports earnings tomorrow, and today's gain of 2.11% suggests trades were buying the name in advance of that report. There was some elevated options activity in Home Depot today, too, but history suggest traders should be careful with the home improvement giant post-earnings."Looking into HD's earnings history, the stock has closed lower the day after earnings in all but two of the past eight quarters, though the reaction to Home Depot's most recent report in May was positive," according to Schaeffer's Investment Research. "Over the past two years, the shares have swung an average of 1% the day after earnings, regardless of direction. This time around, the options market is pricing in a larger-than-usual 6% swing for Tuesday's trading." Some Good Dow NewsI've mentioned a few times this year that alternative energy stocks and ETFs are really weighing on the traditional energy sector, so with that in mind, it was nice to see Chevron (NYSE:CVX) jump 1.68% today on some bullish analyst chatter. Barclays started coverage of Chevron today with an "overweight" rating and a $145 price target. That price target implies significant upside from today's close just under $118."Chevron is well positioned to both return significant free cash flow to shareholders and fund its…compound annual growth rate guidance," according to the bank. Dow Jones Bottom LineIn addition to the aforementioned Twitter action by President Trump, today's upside was the product of familiar themes: expectations that more Fed rate cuts are coming and that the U.S. and China might be able to make some headway on the trade front.Speaking of the Fed, Chairman Jerome Powell speaks in Wyoming late this week, so it's safe to say all eyes and ears will be on that speech regarding rate cut clues.Todd Shriber does not own any of the aforementioned securities.
