Chevron Beats Estimates, Exxon Mobil Falls Short

Updated on

Chevron Corp. surpassed every first-quarter profit and production estimate, raising the possibility of a resumption of share buybacks later this year.

Chevron earned $1.90 a share during the first three months of the year, well in excess of the $1.47 average of 18 estimates in a Bloomberg survey of analysts. The company also pumped more crude and natural gas than observers anticipated, Chevron said Friday in a statement, enhancing the benefits from rallying oil prices.
