Good revenue, profitability, dividend is good; big player in Canada's Kitimat LNG project with upstream close supplies of NG. Canada's regulatory scheme isn't as much of an obstacle course as that of our USA, so getting this LNG facility online shouldn't be difficult. Exports to hungry for LNG Asian countries will make this stock profitable.
If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Chevron may not be your top choice.
