Data is the new oil X – Oil again…

It will be a short update this time. After a couple of tech-related companies we are back at the oil. A “small” oil major this time as Chevron has a revenue of “only” 159 billion in 2018. It’s not little money of course, but compared to 2008 it’s only 58% of the revenue back then. It must have been a hard time for Chevron, because for Shell, BP and ExxonMobil it was 85%, 83% and 61% respectively. Looking at the equity, the picture is the other way round: 157%, 110%, 176%, 180% for Shell, BP, ExxonMobil and Chevron.

This money can only come from either additional shares issued or profit (from operations or by e.g. selling parts of the company). Looking at the profits for 2018/2013/2008 we see Shell:6%/4%/6%, BP: 7%/7%/9%, ExxonMobil: 3%/6%/6% Chevron: 9%/10%/9% It seems they didn’t want to be the largest but the most profitable. Indeed it led to a fast growth of their equity (although dividends will eat a part of the profit and I didn’t check that part. Yet we know that e.g. Shell reduced the equity for the first time since World War II). With Chevron having the lowest 2018 revenue of the series, it was a good moment to sort the graph on this 2018 revenue as Chevron remains at the same position where an added  company will usually be: to the right.

Because the graph is broad by now, three screenshots are presented below. All three are clickable and will open the real 3D-graph in your browser (if JavaScript and WebGL are enabled that is).

Double-clicking the screenshot will open the 3D-graph in your browser. For maniputalion of this 3D-graph: Clicking the right mouse-button and moving the mouse up and down at the same time, will zoom the graph in and out. Clicking left while moving the mouse will tilt the graph in different directions. Double clicking in the graph translates it and readjusts the centre at the same time. Just try it – If you don’t know how to get the normal position back, refresh the page in your browser.

Below I present a picture of the numbers (including the parameter-line), so you can do the math yourself if you like.

No deep-dives this time as we are waiting for three tech-giants coming in: Alphabet, Microsoft and Facebook. Let’s see what they will bring us as revenue, profit (margin), equity, total assets (and gearing).

For more background on the 3D-graph generator, download our white-paper  together with the 3D-graphs (html-format, available as zip). Or go to our website and download the free demo-package to try the 3D-graph generator yourself. New posts will be announced on Twitter: @AnRep3D and our Youtube-channel offers short explanatory movies on the 3D-graphs and the generator creating them.

About AnRep3D

AnRep3D is the new company, founded after the handover of Scientassist (together with VRBI) to one of my sons. From now I will focus on three-dimensional graphs for the financial markets, showing the main figures from annual reports in comparison. As per 2021 a second product is available: EnRep3D. It is meant to visualise energy. Although the engine is the same, the texts, manual, website and examples (including blogposts) are focused at energy.
