I have held XOM stock since the days it was the Standard Oil Co of NJ. If you know the company's history you will know that a century ago it was a huge monopoly and in fact most of the domestic oil companies of today were spun off the oil Standard when it was broken up by the government decree.
As a result the company is highly sensitive to being a "rich man's stock", e.g., AAPL, GOOG, etc. and will split the stock when it gets between 100-120 a share.
If you go back over the last half century, I don't recall one instance of the split being over 2/1.
Moreover, a split costs tha company millions in administrative fees and is not undertaken because of the augury coming from a horse's behind.
Cogent comments please before this board is destroyed like many others.
