Saudi Arabia has announced plans to cut its oil production by 1 million barrels per day (bpd) as the Kingdom pledged to do “whatever is necessary” to prop up sagging prices.
Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) and Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD) are different breeds of dividend stocks. The oil companies pay fixed base quarterly dividends like most other dividend stocks. On top of that, they both pay variable dividends based on the oil-fueled free cash flow.
By the time you read this, OPEC would have probably decided, even announced, new production levels meant to seize pricing of oil back from the hands of short-sellers who’ve driven the group nuts this year in trying to keep a barrel at $80 or more. Oil revenue is the lifeblood of the economies in OPEC, or the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, a 13-member Saudi-led group whose main objective is to be the price-setter of the commodity. Ten other oil-producing states, including Russia, that aren’t OPEC members also keep their output closely in line with the group’s for the sake of price.

Oil prices have bounced between $70 and $80 a barrel this year. While there are many top oil stocks, I've zeroed in on Chevron (NYSE: CVX) as the one I want to buy this month. Here's why I believe oil prices appear poised to rally and why Chevron is my oil stock of choice to profit from that thesis.

Fear that the OPEC+ alliance of world oil producers could announce a third production cut in nine months led crude prices to rally again on Friday, significantly paring weekly losses. London-traded Brent crude was up $1.75, or 2.4%, to $76.03. Like WTI, Brent was down 1% on the week.
Oil prices rose sharply Friday after the U.S. debt ceiling deal passed through Congress, averting a default ahead of the weekend’s meeting of OPEC ministers and their allies at the weekend. The U.S. Senate approved a bill to lift the country’s $31.4 billion debt ceiling late Thursday, the day after the House of Representatives did the same. The agreement now heads to the White House, with President Joe Biden just having to sign the deal to stave off a sovereign default that would have had severe economic repercussions globally.

Investing.com -- Oil prices rose in Asian trade on Friday as markets cheered the approval of a bill to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and avoid a default, although uncertainty ahead of an OPEC meeting over the weekend kept gains in check.
The outcome of Sunday’s OPEC+ meeting will most likely be price-driven versus the alliance’s hype that it isn’t price-focused, analysts at Citigroup suggested in a note issued Thursday. “What the 8 OPEC+ members, plus Russia, that committed to make output cuts for May actually do when they meet this weekend is likely to be a function of prices,” the Citi note said, referring to Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Algeria, Kazakhstan and Iraq. “Further deterioration in prices toward $70 or below for Brent put a 60-70% likelihood on a cut by some members of the group, and Russia might not be one of them,” the note added.
It’s the same script that plays out before each OPEC+ meeting and we’re seeing it again. Crude prices settled up as much as 3% Thursday, paring the 7% loss from three previous days of trading, as market participants braced for the possibility that OPEC+ would announce another output cut at its meeting this weekend — against bets for a stay. It was one reason for the late-week comeback in oil prices despite a dismal weekly supply-demand report on oil released by the U.S. government.

U.S. crude stockpiles likely rose last week along with inventories of fuel, petroleum industry group API indicated in a report Wednesday that bucked expectations for falls in both as oil bulls bet on higher energy demand with the advent of summer road, air and seaborne travel. The U.S. crude inventory balance rose by 5.202 million barrels during the week ended May 26, according to the API, or American Petroleum Institute. The petroleum industry group reported a crude draw of 6.799M barrels in the prior week to May 19.
Indonesia and Malaysia have said they will delay trade talks with the EU while they seek fairer treatment for small palm oil producers hit by the bloc’s “punitive” new rules to prevent deforestation. Dato’ Sri Haji Fadillah bin Haji Yusof, deputy prime minister of Malaysia, told the Financial Times during a visit to Brussels on Wednesday that the EU’s recently adopted law banning the import of products that come from land cleared of forests, was “punitive and unfair treatment towards us and to smallholders in particular”. Indonesia, which has been negotiating with the EU over a free trade agreement for seven years, said it would not progress those talks until more leniency was given to palm oil producers under the new EU rules.
Oil prices hit four-week lows on Wednesday after weak manufacturing data from China, the world’s largest crude importer, raised fears about demand growth in the second half of the year. The dollar’s surge on expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates again in June added to the weight on crude futures that are priced in the U.S. currency. New York-traded West Texas Intermediate, or WTI, crude settled down $1.37, or 2%, at $68.09 per barrel.
