ConocoPhillips today held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders where it reaffirmed its goal to deliver double-digit annual returns to shareholders. "ConocoPhillips is set for growth,” said Chairman and CEO Ryan Lance. “Our goal is to deliver 3 to 5 percent growth in both volumes and margins, with a compelling dividend. We believe there is clear demand for this kind of energy stock.” At the meeting, the company highlighted several key accomplishments in its first two years as an E&P company. These include: generating proceeds of $12.4B from the sale of non-core assets; delivering several major project startups; ramping up development drilling programs, primarily in the unconventionals; participating in four deepwater Gulf of Mexico exploration successes; and achieving a two-year average of 167% organic reserve replacement ratio. The company also raised its dividend in 2013 and remains committed to increases over time. During the meeting, the company also reiterated its five ongoing strategic priorities to drive long-term performance: Deliver 3%-5% compound annual production growth, as well as growth in reserves, through global drilling programs in legacy assets, unconventional assets and major projects. The company is also actively pursuing conventional and unconventional exploration opportunities that can sustain future growth; Generate 3%-5% compound annual margin growth over the next several years, at flat prices, by shifting the company’s production mix to higher-value products; Offer a compelling dividend; and Maintain a relentless focus on safety and execution. The company expects to spend an average of about $16B per year over the next several years to deliver its margin and volume growth. Over the next few years, the company will allocate 95% of its capital toward investments that deliver margins greater than the company’s average today.

10:14 EDTCOPAnalyst 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.
