Best Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2018

On November 10, super-independent ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) hosted its annual analyst day and gave investors some guidance on what the firm plans on doing. After a solid Q3 report, the company was coming in with a strong hand to play. Last quarter, ConocoPhillips generated enough cash flow to cover both its capital expenditures and its dividend. Cash flow neutrality means its outspend headache is over (as long as Brent stays around $50) and asset sales and/or debt issuance won’t be required to preserve its strong liquidity position.

Even as ConocoPhillips effectively breaks even around $50 Brent, management is still pursuing a conservative spending plan to further the company’s shift towards a more dynamic and financially balanced enterprise. Conoco’s 2017 capex budget is forecasted to come in at $5 billion, $200 million less than its 2016 budget yet one that will generate an adjusted 0% – 2% production growth. The adjustment is for expected asset sales.

On the operating cost front, that has been cut down to $6 billion next year from $9.7 billion in 2014. Below is a look at how Conoco’s cost saving initiatives have transformed the company’s cash flow outlook.
