Exxon Mobil: 52-Week High Price Is Only The Beginning

Since I first wrote about Exxon Mobil back in September 2021, the price has advanced more than 30%. And some readers asked if the thesis needs to be updated given the large price movement. This analysis shows that there are still good reasons to be bullish both in the near term and in the long term. Considering the current oil price and its business fundamentals, an investment still offers an enticing opportunity with favorable odds for double-digit annual returns.

Keep an Eye on Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) For a Pullback Opportunity

Keep an Eye on Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) For a Pullback Opportunity

So far in 2022, Exxon Mobil Corporation's (NYSE: XOM) performance seems to mirror one from one year ago, where the stock rallied for months. With the oil prices climbing back to the multi-year highs, we can expect more positive catalysts for the stock.

Why I Prefer Exxon Mobil

Exxon Mobil waited to sell older assets until market prices were favorable to such a sale. Most competitors write down an asset and then proceed to dump it when industry conditions favor buyers. EQT executed such a buying strategy from Chevron and now has assets worth many times what was paid. The Guyana partnership will bring on a lot of low-cost production. Exxon Mobil plans to grow about 8% a year with a current 5% dividend for a combined return of about 13%.

If Exxon Can Outlast Environmentalist Pressures, It Can Win This Decade

While Exxon is not facing environmentalist pressures as severe as its European peers, such as Shell, it is not immune to it either, due to recent elections to its board. Shell and others have a secondary reason for being more responsive to environmentalist pressures, namely dwindling upstream reserves, which are less of an issue for Exxon. Exxon's response to environmentalist pressures is of a dual nature. One is addressing emissions from existing projects, second is to put a pause on new projects. If Exxon can resist the pressure to shelve new projects and mostly focus on reducing emissions from existing projects, it can outperform most of its Western oil major peers this decade.
