Vladimr Putin’s latest mobilization caused the oil price to spike yesterday morning. Somewhat predictably, energy stocks opened higher, - but then very quickly reversed course, along with the price of crude, when it emerged that US inventories increased by 1.1 million barrels from a week earlier.

Yield To The Fed Rate Hike: 3 Dividend Stocks To Fight Inflation

Summary The Fed is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Red hot inflation, recession fear, and negative market sentiment emphasized last week by FedEx have many investors seeking high-yielding dividend stocks to hedge against and battle losses. This article highlights three dividend-paying stocks with excellent fundamentals, amazing profitability, and strong dividend safety grades. The four-year average yield on each stock pick is over 4%. Although each of the three stocks experienced some declines this year, they have fared well overall. Like most equities with high yields, they can be risky while offering a good opportunity to buy when markets fall. September Federal Reserve Meeting ((FOMC)) Investors are on the prowl for investments that offer income, as portfolios have taken a hit in this volatile market environment, with no end in sight. And while not all high-yield stocks are created equal, by and large, the backdrop of the upcoming Fed meeting supports a 75- to 100-basis point hike, which bodes well for dividend-paying stocks. However, should the Fed surprise by presenting a less than 75-basis point hike, growth stocks will likely take off. Major Indexes One-Week Decline Ending 9/16/22 Major Indexes One-Week Decline Ending 9/16/22 (FactSet via WSJ) But the fight against inflation persists, as the major markets tanked last week on FedEx’s ominous warning of a potential global recession. FedEx sank 21% following its Q4 earnings miss, resulting in analysts downgrading the stock. In addition, several industries, not just air freight and logistics, have felt the heat that resulted in the Nasdaq -5.5% last week, followed by the Dow Jones -4.1% and the S&P 500 -4.8%, similar declines for the week ending September 16th. But the fight against inflation persists, as the major markets tanked on FedEx’s ominous warning of a potential global recession. "Global volumes declined as macroeconomic trends significantly worsened later in the quarter, both internationally and in the U.S. We are swiftly addressing these headwinds, but given the speed at which conditions shifted, Q1 results are below our expectations," said FedEx CEO Raj Subramaniam. Uncertainty continues to move the markets, although the Fed drove home the message in Jackson Hole that it plans to raise rates, prompting Fed Funds futures to reprice terminal rates near 4.4% by April 2023. Fed Funds Rates Chart (Bloomberg Finance L.P. ) And while the markets may or may not believe that the Fed will be aggressive enough in tightening for the September 20-21 FOMC meeting, as written by Mott Capital Management: The market agrees that rates need to go higher, [but] it still believes the Fed will be cutting rates by around 40 bps by the end of next year. The spread between the April 2023 Fed Fund futures and December 2023 contracts on August 25 was 32 bps. The current spread suggests the market believes the Fed may be more aggressive in cutting rates next year. Globally, central banks have been behind the curve, and the U.S. Fed’s inflation battle has investors uncertain about the future. Turning to high-yielding dividend stocks with Strong Buy ratings can make for an excellent portfolio rescue in either a rallying or down market. My three stock picks are fundamentally strong, with solid earnings projections and forward yields above 2.40%, and a four-year average yield above 4%, making a case for an investment rescue option. 3 Dividend Stocks with High Yields to Invest In Underwhelming wage growth coupled with astronomical “sticky” costs of living – food, healthcare, and shelter, to name a few – spell bad news for many, who are struggling to make ends meet and keep up with the increases that have seen some of the biggest jumps since 1979. As the Fed moves to temper costs, this could spell trouble for some stocks while proving favorable for others. Budgeting in today’s market is crucial because every dollar counts. Building a portfolio with passive income-generating stocks like LSI, MPC, and CVX offers an opportunity to hedge against potential downturns. I’ve said many times that not all dividend stocks are created equal, and it's crucial to consider a stock’s fundamentals when picking high-yield stocks. These stocks have strong financials and excellent overall Quant Ratings & Factor Grades that complement their high yields. 1. Life Storage, Inc. (LSI) Market Capitalization: $10.04B Dividend Safety Grade: B Forward Dividend Yield: 3.67% Quant Rating: Strong Buy Ranked second in its industry and eighth out of 179 in its sector, Life Storage, Inc. (LSI) is an adjusted income self-storage REIT serving residential and commercial customers. LSI units offer a great income stream to offset the rising cost of inflation. Its business model provides an excellent solution using monthly re-pricing, whereby costs are passed onto customers, and rates adjust upwards quickly to offer more recession resilience than many other sectors. With stellar growth and dividends, the self-storage niche offers many advantages. LSI is geographically diversified throughout the United States and Canada, with more than 1,000 locations. LSI offers low capital and operational expenses, increasing cash flows, and wide operating margins. In the current environment, self-storage REITs offer great inflation hedges with excellent yields. E-commerce is driving the need for storage facilities to house the tech industry’s servers and supplies that have built up due to labor shortages that have prevented the dissemination of products. Although the stock's forward P/FFO of 19.76x comes at a premium, its overall valuation grade is a C-. Given the popularity of warehouses that are seeing higher income potential than other real estate offerings due to the size of warehouse space and minimal overhead, Life Storage has a growth advantage over many other REITs, making it attractive for investment. LSI Valuation and Growth LSI is a strong buy based on our quant ratings and given the collective characteristics of growth, profitability, momentum, and earnings. Despite the stock’s -20% YTD price performance, as fellow Seeking Alpha Marketplace author Philip Eric Jones writes: The YTD sell-off in LSI shares appears to have little or nothing to do with the company itself, and much more to do with the huge rotation from growth to value. This company appears to be bristling with good health. Jones not only named LSI the best Storage REIT in December and again as one of his top 12 REITs for the next 12 months, but I also wrote about LSI in April pieced titled 3 Best REITs to Buy to Fight Inflation. Despite the stock being downgraded given market volatility and looking into historical cycles back to 1994, Wall Street and our quant ratings maintain the buy ratings. LSI has maintained consistent top-and bottom-line earnings beats, with the most recent leading to an A revision grade and four FY1 Up revisions within the last 90 days. 2022 Q2 FFO of $1.65 beat by $0.12, and revenue of $257.05M beat by $13.63M (+37.3% Y/Y). Maintaining its average occupancy of 94%, 21 consecutive months of positive rent roll-ups, and the acquisition of 13 wholly owned stores and 17 third-party managed stores, it’s no wonder LSI increased its quarterly dividend by 8%, a 46% increase from the previous year. LSI Stock EPS & Revisions (Seeking Alpha Premium) Given the company’s healthy balance sheet, we foresee the company taking advantage of the high inflationary environment by continuing to showcase solid earnings growth, prompting this REIT to gain in popularity. LSI Dividend Scorecard LSI Dividend Scorecard (Seeking Alpha Premium) LSI has a solid dividend scorecard, offering a B dividend safety rating, the company’s ability to continue paying a current dividend. Life Storage has a strong 3.67% forward dividend yield and has paid a dividend for 25 consecutive years, offering an 8.67% five-year growth rate. “We have remained focused on strategic growth, enabling us to grow our wholly-owned portfolio close to 18% from 1 year ago. These acquisitions represent properties in top markets, including Sunbelt markets such as Florida, California, Texas, and Georgia. Slightly over 75% of what we closed year-to-date are stabilized properties, while the remaining 25% are lease-up properties that will provide strong upside in future years. Looking forward, our current acquisition pipeline remained strong with an additional $258 million under contract,” said Joe Saffire, LSI Director & CEO. Historically, REITs and real estate stocks tend to benefit from inflation, proving to be a valuable asset for portfolios, as showcased by the recent rent hikes linked to CPI. Offering higher dividend yields and growth with potential valuation appreciation, LSI not only offers a favorable outlook but a strategic pipeline, as outlined by LSI CEO above. I believe this stock is ripe for the picking and an excellent option to fight inflation, along with my next two energy picks. 2. Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) Market Capitalization: $47.69B Dividend Safety Grade: A- Forward Dividend Yield: 2.43% Quant Rating: Strong Buy On a longer-term bullish uptrend, oil and gas refining company Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) and its subsidiaries are a top-ranking energy company focusing on integrated segments and a geographically diverse footprint in the midcontinent, Gulf, and West Coast of the U.S. The energy sector (XLE +35%YTD) has been full steam ahead since the pandemic, with Marathon capitalizing on rising prices, increasing profits, and cutting costs, which have proven fruitful with more than $1B in operating expense reductions meanwhile crushing its Q2 earnings. MPC Stock Growth & Profitability With a nearly $12B cash hoard, strong financials, and a favorable outlook, it's no surprise that MPC’s margins continue to soar in Q2. The strong market, despite some softening, has enabled energy companies like MPC to reduce debt to pre-pandemic levels while capitalizing on crude oil streams.

The 'OPEC Put': Buy Chevron And Occidental's Dip With Buffett

Summary OPEC’s output cut on September 5th is the first time that cuts have been made when oil prices were $80-$90. This may evolve into an “OPEC put” supporting oil prices, akin to the famed “Fed put” in equities. Oil futures are currently pricing in $60/barrel long term, which are also broadly used in equity valuation models. At $60/barrel and assuming no additional growth beyond Management forecasted improvements to FY26, Chevron and Occidental are fairly valued at current prices and any further upside is not reflected. Given Berkshire’s average purchase price is just c.20% below current market prices, the dip in oil stocks in the week of September 5th– 9th is probably a good time to buy. OPEC cut oil output quotas in its meeting on September 5th. Since then, oil prices have reportedly fallen from intensified recessionary worries, but there was a strong rally on September 9th (Friday), which erased most of the losses. In this article, I will first cover why the symbolic output cut is of great significance to oil prices and more importantly to Chevron (NYSE:CVX) and Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY), two oil stocks that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) has bought a lot of at prices not much lower than current market prices. Part I: Rise of the "OPEC Put": The historic significance of recent OPEC output cuts This represents the first time in history that OPEC has cut oil output when prices are at such high levels. The chart below shows OPEC's output cuts historically. We can see they have all occurred when prices were relatively low. This is the first time OPEC has cut output, even symbolically, at such high prices. OPEC cuts compared with oil prices As discussed previously, OPEC+ may be shifting to a strategy of maximizing profits as oil producers worry about future demand uncertainty and are less willing to invest in capacity expansion: Historical OPEC output ( + public info) Note: the above boxes indicate rough period when output cuts started, they do not illustrate the exact end time. By cutting output, OPEC+ has made good on its threat to cut output anytime. Saudi Arabia has also solidified its control over OPEC+ with the price wars of 2020, which showed everyone it is unafraid to flood the market to negative prices. This had the added benefit of pushing independent shale out of the market (into the hands of other big corporations that are also like-minded to "rationalize" production). The success (from OPEC+ perspective) of this strategy has probably bolstered Saudi's position in the group so the others are more willing to follow. This practice differs greatly from the past where OPEC cut output when prices were very low, and did not want oil prices to be so high that there would be demand destruction. Well, there is demand destruction now from the highly anticipated growth in renewables and electric vehicles. Whether or not electric vehicles actually do work out (e.g. many have pointed out concerns such as the lack of materials to make EVs) or not is a separate question, but right now this poses a credible enough threat to future demand forecasts, so this decreases the incentive of oil producers to increase production. What are the implications of OPEC shifting to a profit maximization strategy? In the short run, this may make little difference, as many analysts point out, OPEC+'s current production level is below the output guidance anyway, so short term supply/demand dynamics have larger influence on short term oil prices. But I believe it is wrong to underestimate the symbolic nature behind this move. This may signal the rise of the "OPEC put", as OPEC rushes to verbally intervene when oil prices just soften slightly, akin to the hallowed "Fed put" in the equities market, where the Fed used to verbally reassure stock markets whenever there was a correction (that is before the current bout of monetary tightening in 2022). Given that OPEC+ exports 60-70% of the world's tradeable oil and that many oil majors are forecasting small if not nil production growth in the next five years, if OPEC+ has a "whatever it takes" attitude to maintaining high prices, there are good chances it will succeed. It may lead to significant higher prices for oil than the market are currently pricing in, as shown below, the WTIC futures price curve ranges to from about $87 for October to low $65 by 2026 and all the way to $57 by 2029 and after (Oddly enough, the 3 years future prices was c.$60 during the depths of the coronavirus pandemic as well). OPEC appears to be aiming higher, as they are floating and enacting these cuts at $90. If the market is currently pricing in such oil prices (and stocks of oil companies at these oil prices), then if OPEC+ succeeds to continuously manage oil prices higher, then this could mean significantly upside for shareholders of oil stocks. WTIC oil futures price curve (Public info) Part II: Implication of the OPEC put on CVX and OXY If the OPEC cut is able to keep oil prices at $80-$90 for the next 5 years and perhaps longer, specifically speaking how does this impact Chevron and Occidental? I will analyze these two in detail as they have Berkshire's stamp of approval. I will focus my analysis on the upstream oil business as: (i) the "OPEC put" will mostly impact the sale price of oil, rather than natural gas prices and refinery margins, and (ii) the upstream oil business accounts for the majority of the free cashflow (FCF) generated. Market Consensus Currently the market consensus is heavily discounting the upside, as consensus EPS estimates forecast EPS to drop off sharply in line with strip oil prices (i.e. somewhere along $60 for long term oil prices). Given future capex guidance by these companies are relatively stable, the estimated EPS change magnitude is indicative of estimated FCF, whereby Occidental would see decline c.75% in 2026 compared to 2022 levels (FCF to equity holders will decline at a less rate as Occidental pays down its debts in the next few years). With such consensus forecasts, it is understandable why many question whether Occidental and Chevron are a great buy. Consensus Estimated EPS per share $/share 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 Chevron 19.01 16.72 13.83 11.17 9.62 Occidental 10.77 8.44 6.04 2.73 2.45 Source: Seeking Alpha I have done an illustrative high level summary comparison of Chevron and Occidental below, before we do a deep dive into each Company and this will be used as a reference below when discussing each Company.

Chevron The below will use data from Chevron's annual report, investor presentation slides (link), conference calls etc. From 2022-2026: At $75/barrel Brent prices, Chevron sees c.$200bn cashflow from operations, and after taking out roughly $75bn in cash capex, this leaves about $120bn (give or take a few billion) FCF for buybacks and dividends; At $50/barrel, this would be FCF of $75bn. Chevron 2022-2026 5 year cumulative FCF (Investor presentation) This is roughly consistent with Management's estimated sensitivity per $1 change in Brent oil price, which is $400 million in after-tax earnings (roughly equal to FCF), extrapolated across a spectrum of $50-$100/barrel shown below: Chevron 2022-2026 5 year cumulative FCF sensitivity to oil prices Brent oil price per barrel ($/barrel) 50 60 75 90 100 5 year cumulative FCF ($bn) 75 90 120 150 170 Source: Author's calculations based on Company disclosed information and certain assumptions outlaid above Note: the above extrapolation is based on sensitivities based on Company provided inputs and are just for illustrative purposes rather than representing Management's view. Management projects a 10% CAGR increase in CFFO (cashflow from operations) from FY21 levels up until 2026. FY21's CFFO was $29bn, so there is about $17.7bn of improvement. By FY26, CFFO would be $46.7bn, minus $16bn in midpoint capex guidance, would be c.$30bn in FCF. Given FY21 average realized prices was $65/barrel, subtract $2 billion to normalize it to $60/barrel, which would give $28bn annually in FCF at $60/barrel.

Chevron: Expect An Uphill Struggle From Here

Summary CVX's momentum has stalled after its Q2 earnings release, as the market turned its focus back to growth fears. Our analysis suggests that Chevron's underlying growth cadence could decelerate, putting further pressure on CVX's upward momentum. WTI crude and natural gas futures have also been struggling for buying momentum, despite the energy crisis in Europe, coupled with the current supply/demand imbalance. As a result, we believe CVX's outperformance potential could be impacted by the market's indecisiveness, coupled with more challenging comps. Accordingly, we reiterate our Sell rating. Thesis Chevron Corporation's (CVX) stock recovered remarkably from its July lows as it headed into its Q2 earnings release. However, its buying momentum has since stalled, despite posting a performance that easily beat the Street's consensus. Furthermore, we noted that the CVX appears to have formed another ominous bull trap (indicating that the market denied further buying upside decisively) this week, in line with the weakness seen in WTI crude oil futures (CL1:COM). Chevron remains committed to its debt reduction plan, dividend payout, and stock repurchase guidance, which should spur investor confidence. However, given its outperformance from 2021, we urge investors to be wary about expecting continued outperformance as its comps become more challenging. Therefore, given decelerating underlying growth metrics, we postulate that CVX could find it very challenging to breach its June highs as WTI crude continues to struggle for buying momentum. In addition, while the recent outperformance from natural gas has been instrumental, we believe Henry Hub natural gas futures (NG1:COM) are configured for a steeper decline after the current distribution phase. Therefore, the dynamics in the underlying market could add to the comp headwinds facing Chevron, putting further pressure on sustaining its bullish bias. Accordingly, we reiterate our Sell rating in CVX and urge investors to leverage July's rally to cut exposure and rotate. Chevron's Growth Rates Are Unsustainable Chevron revenue by segment change % (S&P Cap IQ) Chevron posted another solid quarter in Q2, as downstream revenue (76% revenue share) surged 86% YoY, up from Q1's 75% uptick. However, its growth has clearly slowed from the peak metrics in early 2021. Furthermore, the growth in its critical upstream segment has also slowed discernibly, as it posted revenue growth of 66% in Q2, up from Q1's 52%. Notwithstanding, it was also down markedly from the highs in FY21, as Chevron faced tougher comps. Given the recent struggles in the underlying market, we postulate that the company could continue to face challenges to maintain its growth cadence. Chevron revenue change % and adjusted EBIT margins % consensus estimates (S&P Cap IQ) Even the bullish consensus estimates indicate that Chevron's revenue growth should moderate through FY23. Therefore, it's also likely to impact its operating leverage, as Chevron's adjusted EBIT margins are also expected to fall. As a result, we believe it's increasingly difficult for CVX to maintain its buying upside if the underlying metrics face pressure. Notwithstanding, we believe it's unlikely for Chevron's underlying model to revert to pre-COVID days in the near- to medium-term, given the current supply/demand dynamics. Therefore, it should help undergird its profitability profile, supporting its valuation. However, we urge investors to consider the potential for further upside surprises that could lift CVX's momentum further. WTI crude's momentum has continued to struggle despite recent hawkish comments by Saudi Arabia, which led to an initial rally. However, August gains have already been digested, as the market returned to its focus on growth fears that could further weaken retail and industrial demand.
