Chevron Q2 earnings get a boost from Anadarko deal termination

In the midst of volatile oil prices and geo-political conditions, Chevron (NYSE: CVX) reported 8% decline in total revenues and other income in the second quarter of 2019 to $38.85 billion, which was lower than the street estimate of $40.55 billion.

The San Ramon, California-based oil giant said its earnings for the second quarter stood at $2.27 per share, compared to $1.78 per share in the same quarter last year. Earnings were boosted by $740 million associated with the Anadarko merger termination fee. Analysts were expecting flat year-over-year EPS growth.
