Over the next five years, earnings-per-share are expected to rise by 5.5 percent, according to the consensus of the Wall Street analyst community.

Demand for oil and natural gas is expected to continue rising.
The demand for oil and natural gas is expected to rise in the decades ahead. That will result from Brazil, China, India, and other emerging nations increasing their needs for energy. Oil and natural gas are the favorites. Coal is dirty. Alternative energy is not nearly at the mass scale needed. As a result, billions joining the consumer class around the globe will turn to oil and and natural gas for their heating and power needs.
Eni SPA pays its shareholders very well to be long term investors.
The dividend yield for ENI SPA is 4.83 percent. That easily tops those for Chevron and ExxonMobil. If the earnings rise as projected, it would make sense that the amount of the dividend would increase, too.

Eni SPA has rewarded those buying into an Italian oil and natural entity. The analyst community sees stronger growth ahead. With a robust dividend yield, that should make for a health total return for long term investors.
