Chevron’s dividend yield

Chevron’s current dividend yield is 3.8%, lower than its Q4 2016 yield of 4.2% due to its stock price rising. In the first nine months of this year, Chevron’s cash outflow for dividends was $6.4 billion. Supported by its stronger cash flow and record upstream volumes, Chevron initiated a program to buy back around $3 billion in stock every year. In the third quarter, Chevron bought back $750 million in stock.

Peers’ dividend yield

BP’s (BP) dividend yield has fallen from 6.2% to 6.1% since Q4 2016, while Total’s (TOT), Equinor’s (EQNR), and Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDS.A) have fallen from 5.6%, 5.4%, and 7.4% respectively, to 5.3%, 3.9%, and 6.2%. Next, we’ll review which institutions are buying and selling Chevron stock.
