Shareholder group Follow This targets BP, Shell over climate, Bloomberg reports

Follow This, a Dutch Group that accumulates shares in oil companies in an effort to pressure them regarding greenhouse gas emission has filed another resolution against Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) for 2019, filed its first resolution against BP (BP) and may also target Chevron (CVX) and Exxon Mobil (XOM), Bloomberg reports, citing the group. Although the group's resolutions have previously been defeated, leader Mark van Baal has been a source of frustration for Shell management, standing up at the company's May 2018 shareholder meeting and sating Shell was misleading its investors by claiming it was on track to meet global climate targets. The group's resolutions will urge companies to align their investments with the 2016 Paris Agreement, in which countries agreed to try to limit global warming to less than two degrees Celsius.Reference Link

Neutral
Royal Dutch Shell assumed with a Neutral at Simmons
Simmons analyst Blake Fernandez assumed Royal Dutch Shell with a Neutral rating and a price target of $72 as part of his broader research note on Integrated Oils, suggesting that the industry stands to benefit from the current stage of the energy cycle. Fernandez notes that the company enjoyed stronger than expected earnings last year, but its past couple of quarters have been underwhelming because of "multiple transitory culprits driving results including tax, derivatives, etc." The analyst prefers to wait for a reversal of this trend before becoming more constructive on the stock.

Stifel reiterates Buy on Civeo as Shell seems close to starting LNG project
Noting that several reports over the last few days indicate a positive decision about a Shell-led (RDS.A) LNG project in Western Canada could be announced as soon as next week, Stifel analyst Stephen Gengaro reiterated his Buy rating and $5 price target on shares of Civeo (CVEO), for whom he has previously said the Shell project could be a "game-changer." If the LNG project receives a positive final investment decision, he believes Civeo will benefit via its ownership of Sitka Lodge, its 40% owned joint venture with Bird Construction and the potential for a long-term project for Civeo to provide ancillary services, said Gengaro.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. LyondellBasell (LYB) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Arun Viswanathan saying the shares look attractive when investors "look through oil and market volatility," anticipating the company to post "robust" EBITDA growth in 2019 and 2020. 2. BP (BP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Jean-Pierre Dmirdjian saying poor year-to-date share performance has created an attractive entry point. He also said shares screen well on free cash flow, oil leverage, and production growth. 3. CME Group (CME) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg with analyst Chris Turner saying he expects "unsettled markets" in 2019 to provide a supportive backdrop for volumes in CME's core interest rate and currency products. 4. American Vanguard (AVD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Chris Kapsch saying despite "much negativity" surrounding the broader agriculture end market amid the ongoing Trump/China trade war, American Vanguard is "navigating and executing admirably." 5. EQT Corporation (EQT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Singer saying he believes the company's production guidance calling for 5% asset sale-adjusted growth in 2019 is conservative.

Simmons analyst Blake Fernandez assumed BP with a Overweight rating and a price target of $52 as part of his broader research note on Integrated Oils suggesting that the industry stands to benefit from the current stage of the energy cycle. The analyst cites an improving macro backdrop, increased deleveraging, and expanding shareholder returns that should produce relative outperformance for this assumed group. Fernandez points to BP's "peer leading" 11% expected free cash flow yield and anticipated buybacks coming from the decline of Macondo related payments starting later in 2018, adding that BP also has the most earnings sensitivity to oil price movements.

Simmons analyst Blake Fernandez assumed Chevron with an Overweight rating and a price target of $139 as part of his broader research note on Integrated Oils, suggesting that the industry stands to benefit from the current stage of the energy cycle. Fernandez adds that Chevron is his Top Idea given that it had the worst year-to-date equity performance in the peer group and expects the stock to "play catch-up". The analyst further points to the company's "ample Permian takeaway capacity" as alleviation of "industry bottlenecks next year could prompt fund rotation back into equities with leverage" to the region.

Outperform
Chevron upgraded to Outperform on continued execution at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst William Featherston upgraded Chevron to Outperform from Neutral, with a $138 price target, citing continued execution, free cash flow visibility and compelling valuation. The analyst believes the company continues to execute on its already superior growth outlook, which should translate into better than expected capital efficiencies into 2019 and sets up for continued robust free cash flow. He sees upside to 2019-2020 volume forecasts supported by strong Permian growth, driving an estimated about $10B-$11B per annum of surplus free cash flow generation, which should enable Chevron to sustain competitive dividend growth and expand the scope of its current share buyback program.

Analyst Pavel Molchanov said Exxon Mobil is "one of the least appealing ways to play" the firm's bullish oil call, particularly following the recent oil price selloff. Molchanov believes Exxon shares will be a source of funds and notes free cash flow yield is below peer group median and is the only supermajor that is not returning capital to shareholders through buybacks.
