As of May 17, Reuters reported eight analysts with recommendations on CVR Refining (CVRR). One analyst has a “strong buy” recommendation, one analyst has a “buy” recommendation, while six analysts have a “hold” recommendation on CVRR.
In the first quarter, 12 hedge funds bought CVR Refining’s (CVRR) stock and three sold of CVRR stock. So the total buying hedge funds outnumbered the total selling hedge funds by nine.

Thirteen analysts (or 59.0%) assigned “hold” ratings on the stock. Three analysts (or 14.0%) assigned a “sell” or “strong sell” rating on the stock. ExxonMobil’s mean target price of $86.00 per share implies a 7.0% gain from the current level.
In this part, we’ll consider analyst ratings for BP after 1Q18 earnings. BP is currently rated by a total of 12 analysts. Of the total, six analysts have given it “buy” or “strong buy” ratings, five have assigned it “hold” ratings, and one analyst has assigned it “sell” ratings.

In this series, we’ve examined ExxonMobil’s (XOM) 1Q18 estimates, segmental earnings outlook, and stock performance. Now, we’ll examine analyst ratings for ExxonMobil. ExxonMobil (XOM) is a financially strong company with comfortable leverage and a good liquidity position.
ExxonMobil (XOM) posted better-than-expected 1Q17 earnings, which paused the downtrend witnessed in the previous quarter. But XOM’s 50-day moving average (or DMA) stayed below its 200 DMA in 2Q17 and 3Q17. However, in 4Q17, as WTI started rising, XOM stock began surging. Plus, tax reforms were announced in the US, pushing up the stock. Led by the stock upsurge, XOM’s 50-day moving average rose steeply, ultimately crossing over its 200-day moving average in 4Q17.
Chevron (CVX) has seen a fall in its short interest (as a percentage of outstanding shares) by 0.2 percentage points at the end of March to the current level of 1.1%. This fall implies that bearish sentiment in the stock has decreased. Over the same period, Chevron stock has risen 6.4%.
