Does this stock EVER go up ?? Four plus years of absolutely
horrible performance with no end in sight. Reasons: poor
production, stupid XTO acquisition , and complete loss of
confidence in management . Reasonable responses welcome.
This board if full of spam, personal attacks, and other garbage.
It's true Exxon has done well over a period of 30 years.
However if one has followed this stock at all, they would
see that it has drastically underperformed all the averages
and its peers over the last 4 to 5 years. If one had any
familiarity with this stock's performance they would know that
since 2009 while the Dow has risen 8000 points this stock
hasn't budged. One would also know that any strong stock
performance was under prior management, not the incompetent
Rex Tillerson ( nothing personal just a fact.). Finally as far as
"the great splits and good divvies" these are also things of the past:
Exxon has a lower yield than the other major oils and if one
cares about splits the last one was in 2000.
My family has been a holder of Exxon for a long time
and I wish the above weren't true but being a apologist
for this stock and this terrible management adds nothing .
One can't live on what a stock did 10, 20, or 30 years ago.
I ca't remember when I bought, but XOM was @ $ 59. so I'm happy with appreciation and will accept an ever increasing divvy. Would love to see the NG part start paying out as well. Tough with a glut, but then fleets are bringing Gas powered trucks and vehicles on line and scheduled for more in the years to come. PBR, OXY and CHK are all in my holdings from time to time. added more CHK recently. Energy is not going away.
