Exxon Mobil Corporation – Buy

  • XOM’s bellwether status in the energy space, optimal integrated capital structure that has historically produced industry-leading returns and management’s track record of capex discipline across the commodity price cycle make it a relatively lower-risk energy sector play.
  • The company’s upstream portfolio has not generated much production growth in 2019 and the trend isn’t expected to change at least in the near term. It nevertheless owns some of the most prolific upstream assets globally. Other aspects of the company’s story include the largest global refining operations, substantial chemicals assets and a dividend history and credit profile that are second to none in the space.
  • As compared to other energy giants, XOM’s capital spending discipline is quite aggressive. The company has a plan in place to allocate significant proportion of its budget to key oil and gas projects that include offshore Guyana resources and Permian – the most prolific shale play in the United States.
  • Needless to say, the company’s business perspective looks different from most peers since big oil rivals have pledged to lower carbon emissions to tackle climate change.
  • To improve the efficiency of operations, the company formed XOM Product Solutions combining the Downstream and Chemical businesses. It also centralized Technology & Engineering and Operations & Sustainability groups to capture the benefits of technology, scale and integration. The compan changed its segment reporting to reflect the new structure.
  • XOM divides its operations into three main segments: Upstream (exploration & production), Downstream (refining) and Chemical (manufacturing & marketing petrochemicals). In 2021, Upstream and Downstream units generated a profit of $15.8 billion and $2.1 billion, respectively. The Chemical segment generated a profit of $7.8 billion in 2021.

XOM trend analysis

Simple chart here that makes a likely case for a downward directional trade. There are 4 simple moving averages – 10, 20, 50, 200. Yellow arrow mark major tops which also line up with RSI over 70 (orange circles) and directional movement (DMI) peaks.

Directional movement is a less popular volume indicator, but it has saved me many times on a 5m chart from entering a trade at the wrong time. The green line (DI+) indicates buying and red line (DI-) indicates selling. The gray line shows total directional movement for a 7-period setting. This is the important one, as it indicates when movement in one direction (in this case buying) has become extreme so buyers will be exhausted and then selling ensues.

Trendsi indicators showing bullish momentum with Middle band Green meaning bullish . Though the Money momentum white line currently coming out the upper red bands, Oil has been the talk. With prices going up. Time will tell the outcome with prices surging for oil Supply and Demand for oil will either push the oil market higher or crash it.

Top chart shows XOM approaching to a major resistance, bottom chart shows oil futures . Oil still trading over the uptrend resistance but is loosing steam. It might break down in a few weeks from now and XOM will follow. Keep it it in your watchlist to short it. I have a small short position waiting for a nice rejection to add. I wouldn’t open new longs in energy stocks at this time.

  • The energy sector continues to outperform the broader market as oil and gas prices continue to hit the roof.
  • Oil producers enjoy the boom: We know it may seem like the commodities crisis and sky high fuel prices are bad for basically everyone, but investors in oil companies have certainly found a silver lining.
  • Five global oil majors have all basically smashed through previous records.
  • These earnings have obvs been buoyed by crude oil and natural gas hitting multi-decade highs, providing somewhat of a cash cow for Big Oil and triggered a bunch of attacks from politicians around the world, who are calling for a windfall tax on the profits.
  • Is the end nigh? Nope, not according to market participants like OPEC member UAE and Goldman Sachs, who say that oil prices are “nowhere near” their peak yet and will likely continue to see a parabolic rise this year, especially as China’s covid recovery sends demand skyrocketing.
  • Exxon gets investors Exxcited – Natural gas giant XOM sees prices hit multi-year highs, fuelled by earnings that are running on record high energy prices.
