Jim Cramer says buy the stock

Other notable figures in the earnings report include a 10% increase in U.S. domestic production and an 8.0% decline internationally.

Chevron generated $8.10 billion in cash flow from operations – close to a 100% annualised increase. On CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”, Jim Cramer said:

Just buy this stock. This is the most attractive of the large caps because of the yield and buyback. They’re doing a lot of offshore; offshore makes a lot of money. They’re doing a lot of low-carbon stuff. I got some comfort from Mike Worth about the pipeline that goes through Russia as well.

For strong Q1 revenue, Chevron cited post-pandemic demand and higher oil prices that Cramer says could climb back to $110 a barrel and, therefore, be a tailwind for the energy company.
