Occidental Petroleum corporate report

Occidental Petroleum corporate report

Report summary

Occidental Petroleum (Oxy) emerged from a turbulent few years as one of the best positioned company's to weather the oil price downturn. Management change, some good fortune with regard to the timing of the California Resources spin-off and holding onto cash generative assets having been unsuccessful in finding a buyer for its portfolio in the Middle East have been key factors. The position it finds itself in today is an enviable one: a company with a stable production growth outlook, large exposure to the Permian, cash generative international assets, one of the strongest balance sheets in the sector, a natural hedge from its chemicals business and a 4% dividend yield.
