Exxon Mobil: The Good Vs. The Bad

Exxon is going to benefit drastically from the increased commodity prices, but refuses to show shareholders any love at this time. Exxon's dividend is back in a manageable position, but it cost shareholders' share buy backs as their peers look more attractive. Exxon is built for the shift towards green energy and is set to be a global leader in carbon capture. Exxon is stuck in a range, keep an eye on the 200-day moving average and $65.

Exxon Mobil Updates Stabroek Reserves To 10 Billion Barrels

Exxon Mobil has updated the Stabroek asset to a massive 10 billion barrels worth of reserves, showing its overall potential. The company, even with the decline rate of existing assets, should see overall upstream production increasing slightly on the back of these new assets.

Exxon Mobil: Key Piece Of The Risk Puzzle

My last article analyzed Exxon Mobil with a focus on the long term, arguing that XOM has turned a corner and a decent long-term return can be expected now.

Exxon Mobil Has Turned A Corner

This article analyzes Exxon Mobil from the perspective of its profit sustainability by the most important profit metric: return on capital employed (ROCE). The results show that XOM’s profitability has turned a corner recently as oil prices stabilize, travel recovers after the pandemic, and its renewable businesses begin to contribute. Even though its current ROCE is still a far cry from its historical averages, a decent long-term return can be expected now under the current valuation in the mid to upper single-digit range.
