Factors at Play

During the quarter, TotalEnergies continued to strengthen the overall portfolio through acquisitions, tie-ups and monetization of non-core assets. This in turn is expected to get reflected in third-quarter results. During the quarter, the company made progress in developing a large network of electric vehicle (EV) charging points that will assist in emission reduction. TotalEnergies acquired the largest EV charge points network in Singapore and signed a deal to develop EV charging points in China.

It continued with strong cost-management initiatives, which are likely to have boosted margins in the third quarter. Third-quarter production is likely to have benefited from new start-ups and strong hydrocarbon prices, which in turn are expected to have boosted earnings.


The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings is $1.50, which indicates 417.3% growth from the year-ago reported figure.
