3 Dividends at Risk in Troubled Oil Markets

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 05, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Crises in the financial and commodity markets are nothing new. We are little more than seven years removed from the paradigm-shattering collapse of 2008, and fairly recently, gold and silver markets were in perpetual decline until this month. It stands to reason, then, that oil investors shouldn’t panic — the sector will eventually recover. Yet as the energy markets continue their descent, dividends — one of the key selling points of oil stocks — are under massive pressure.

While Big Oil companies may feel safe now, no entity is immune from cash flow problems. Here are three major producers that face risk toward their dividends. Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) is one of only three American companies that currently hold the credit ratings agency Standard and Poor’s top ranking. Chevron Corporation (CVX), which suffered an earnings loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. The writing was on the wall, and ConocoPhillips (COP) made the decision to take it on the chin.
