Shares of Chevron (NYSE: CVX) have surged this year. Higher oil prices have been a major catalyst for Chevron this year. Chevron increased its dividend for the 35th straight year in early 2022 and said it would buy back as much as $10 billion of its stock this year.
Both companies have undoubtedly enjoyed a stellar run throughout 2022, and picking between the two is no easy choice.
There is little relief in sight, too, or rather the prescriptions for gaining control of rampant inflation are almost as pernicious as rising prices for basic goods and services. The environment has made it more advantageous to invest in exploration once more and is one of the reasons I think oil majors like ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) and Chevron (NYSE: CVX) are excellent investments.
