12:11 EDTCVXOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
The Wall Street averages began the session slightly lower, soon turned mixed and have all returned to positive ground near midday. The Nasdaq has been the strongest of the indexes throughout. The S&P 500 is trying to hold onto its gain of about 1.5% for the month as July comes to a close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the employment cost index for the second quarter increased 0.2%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. The Chicago PMI business barometer index bounced to 54.7 in July, topping the expected reading of 50.8. The final reading of the University of Michigan consumer confidence index for July came in at 93.1, which was down from the 93.3 flash reading and below the 94 that was expected. In Europe, Athex stated that the Athens Stock Exchange will reopen on August 3. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) declined 2.9% and 3.6%, respectively, after both energy majors reported lower than expected earnings due to falling oil prices. Exxon noted that its Downstream and Chemical segment earnings increased significantly from the second quarter of last year, but that those higher earnings were more than offset by the impact of weaker Upstream realizations and lower asset management gains. Chevron, meanwhile, recorded impairments of $1.96B and other charges of approximately $670M relating to project suspensions and adverse tax effects, all of which stemmed from a downward revision in the company’s longer-term crude oil price outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE), which rose 13% after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company is in advanced merger talks with Coca-Cola bottlers for Germany and the region of Spain, Portugal and Andorra. Also higher following their earnings reports were MoneyGram (MGI), which gained 27%, Expedia (EXPE), which added 10%, and SkyWest (SKYW), which rallied 20%. Among the noteworthy losers was FireEye (FEYE), which fell 5% after reporting quarterly results and announcing that CFO Michael Sheridan intends to leave the company. Also lower following their earnings reports were Ocwen Financial (OCN), which fell 28.5%, and Hanesbrands (HBI), which dropped 10%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 10.36, or 0.06%, to 17,756.34, the Nasdaq was up 18.60, or 0.36%, to 5,147.38, and the S&P 500 was up 3.98, or 0.19%, to 2,112.61.
11:47 EDTCVXChevron CFO says will cover dividend at 'any' crude prices
Chevron CFO Patricia Yarrington said on the company's Q2 earnings call that the company is confident that it can and is committed to scaling its C&E outflows in a manner that will allow it to continue its "27-year record" of annual dividend payment increases. Yarrington acknowledged the company said previously it would cover its dividend from free cash flow at a crude price of $70, adding "we intend to cover the dividend from free cash flow at whatever the ensuing price is. That is a firm commitment on the part of the company and we have tremendous flexibility really in our 2017 C&E to flex that down."

06:39 EDTTOT, CVXEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
