S&P maintains strong buy recommendation on shares of Chevron Corp. (CVX) . CVX sees ’12 capex at $32.7B, up from $28B, before acquisition, expected in ’11. Upstream is slated at $28B (87%), with major capex at LNG and deepwater projects. We think it will comfortably fund this plan, and possibly boost dividends and buybacks via projected cash flow. We see CVX thriving from a smaller refining footprint, where Asian exposure will help future results. About 69% of production is higher-margin oil. Shares have outperformed peers and benchmarks in ’11, but discounted valuations and solid near/long-term growth visibility remain highly attractive, in our view.
