10:14 EDTTOTAnalyst says China trend good for oil equities
China's demand for oil has been stronger than expected and the trend should be positive for oil companies' stocks, research firm Bernstein wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Chinese oil imports reached a record high in April, rising 9% versus the same period a year earlier, Bernstein analyst Neil Beveridge reported. The imports have exceeded expectations and have been boosted by high gasoline demand, according to the analyst. The high gasoline demand in China, in turn, has been driven by a 50% year-over-year increase in the sales of SUVs, according to Beveridge. Analysts will respond to this trend by increasing their global oil demand estimates, he predicted. Oil prices are likely to rise in the near-term, providing a tailwind for oil equities, according to Beveridge, who identified InterOil (IOC) and China's CNOOC (CEO) as two of his favorite names in the Asian region. Other publicly traded companies in the oil space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). WHAT'S NOTABLE: Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India's Tata Motors (TTM), is launching its Range Rover Evoque SUV in China this fiscal year, but is having trouble ramping up production of the vehicle, Forbes reported last week. PRICE ACTION: in early trading, CNOOC was flat at $162.50 and InterOil slipped fractionally to $46.58.
