Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:
Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

U.S. automotive stocks moved higher after China’s announcement on lowering vehicle tariffs. Shares of Ford Motor Co.(NYSE: F), General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM), and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV(Nasdaq: FCAU) all rallied more than 2% in pre-market hours. Markets will be looking for answers in a major shakeup that occurred during the later part of the trading session on Monday. The FBI raided U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer’s office in Manhattan. According to NBC News, the FBI is seeking any evidence tied to a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Trump called the raid an “attack on our country.” Gold prices popped nearly $2.00 in pre-market hours to $1,342.00 per ounce. Investors remain cautious about ongoing geopolitical tensions around the globe. Even though the United States and China may be on the verge of a major trade breakthrough, geopolitical tensions remain high in the Middle East and in Russia. In fact, Money MorningResource Specialist Peter Krauth argues that the current situation is playing out to create a massive profit opportunity for gold investors in the months ahead.

Compare Tesla’s US story with the likes of Ford (NYSE:F)which mass produces its smaller cars in Mexico to avail of cheaper labor. Trump has already stated that he will slap an import tax on US manufacturers when they bring their cars back to the US for resale. If Trump is true to his word and this indeed takes place, this has to be good for the likes of Tesla. Remember, Tesla will have strong competition in EV’s from the likes of General Motors (NYSE:GM)and Ford in the next few years. So any edge Tesla can gain over its competitors will be grabbed with both hands.

Alas, we have a lot of Ebenezer Scrooges out there in corporate America that either dont pay dividends at all or dont pay nearly enough of them. Realistically, not every company can be a dividend-paying powerhouse. Cyclical companies like General Motors Company (GM) or Ford Motor Company (F) have wildly erratic businesses and need to keep a little extra cash on hand for the lean years. (Of course, even then, weak share prices have made the pair of them look generous via nearly 5% yields.)
