Shell has the highest dividend yield

Shell has the highest dividend yield of 7.1% among the integrated energy stocks we’re covering in this series. The second highest is BP with a 7.0% yield. Next in line is Chevron (CVX) with a 4.1% yield. ExxonMobil (XOM) has the lowest yield among our four stocks, at 3.8%.

For exposure to high dividend stocks, you can consider the iShares Core High Dividend (HDV). The ETF has a ~16.0% exposure to energy sector stocks, including XOM and CVX.

In the next part of this series, we’ll do a cross-sectional analysis of integrated energy stocks’ forward valuations.
