    Many reasons why VZ has been down

    by billbill722003 Apr 15, 2014 2:35 PM

    Hope you are right but I am skeptical. All other utilities are way up and even T has been moving while VZ keeps falling. This weakness in the face of zero per cent rates while the yield is over 4.5% does indicate that people "in the know" are trading it- they're selling. I just hope the rest of us don't find out what they know after it's too late. Could it be related to the massive debt incurred at very high (relatively) interest rates in order to grossly overpay for VOD? Stock gas absolutely stunk since the buyout (it was 52-53 at the time) although the market in general is thousands of points higher. It makes shareholder really wonder about this management.

    Agree that stock SEEMS like a bargain. However all high yield stocks have been very strong (even T) EXCEPT Verizon. This stock remains right at a multi year low while almost every utility is at or near its high.
    There must be some reason for this. The market doesn't give gifts usually. The market sure wound up hating the Vodaphone deal.

    Interium update for 1st quater coming out this week

    Agree. When they announce their earnings the stock will get clobbered all over again. I don't understand the point of these preannouncements. The high spending, production shortfalls, and negative preannouncements
    are getting to seem like a bad movie that gets rerun over and over again.

    Amazing how a company of this size could choose such a gross incompetent as CEO. Rex Tillerson may have been a good petroleum engineer but as CEO he is sadly out of his depth. The stock performance under his management doesn't lie. Worst oil stock and one of the worst or the worst Dow stock under this loser's tenure. Actually he's not the loser; the stockholders are the losers.

  • dlavine78 by dlavine78 Apr 9, 2014 2:52 PM Flag

    Under our genius CEO the market cap of this stock has gone from $ 600 billon to about $400 billion. This is because of a stagnant stock price in the face of large stock buy backs. This is very unusual and is another sign of the abysmal job Exxon management has done. Rex Tillerson has very badly served the shareholders.

  • dlavine78 by dlavine78 Apr 9, 2014 1:25 PM Flag

    Same old, same old. Every oil stock up today, Dow up but this miserable dog down. Getting monotonous after six years. Stock where it was in May 2008 when Dow 5000 points lower. The reason is no mystery falling production year after year, earnings misses every quarter, and of course the XTO debacle. Yes, Rex Tillerson is still and always will be a monumentally incompetent CEO. It is a true disgrace that he remains CEO after destroying hundreds of billions of dollars of shareholder wealth. He shoud be given whatever he wants to get him to go. Let him have a great retirement but it is way past time for this hapless CEO to go.

    Yes, Rex Tillerson is still an idiot.

    Worst performing oil major again. Continues years of underperformance. Little chance for this stock as long as it is run by a total idiot CEO.

  • dlavine78 by dlavine78 Mar 14, 2014 6:04 PM Flag

    It's getting monotonous after 5+ years but once again Exxon was the worst performing major oil this week. I know I am somewhat harsh in some of these posts but the Tillerson management team has been pretty hard on Exxon shareholders destroying untold billions of shareholder wealth.

    XOM strong buy under $94

    I will reply to this comment one more time since some people have difficulty understanding basic ideas. I never said XOM was a poor performer over the last 30 years; it was a great performer up to early 2009. For your information the CEOs between 1975 and 2006 were C.C. Garvin, Lawrence Rawl, and Lee Raymond. During this time XOM stock gave its investors an excellent absolute and relative return. Since early 2009, XOM has been the worst or one of the worst Dow stocks over any time period you choose. The CEO during this period has been Rex Tillerson (understand?). Exxon also has been the worst performing oil stock hands down over any time period since 2009. During Rex Tillerson's tenure production has missed targets every single year. The presentation at the analyst meeting last week was just awful. After years of promising improved production Exxon lowered their production targets for 2017 by 10% which is huge and the stock has gone from 97 to 93 over a few days. The company's performance in all areas under Tillerson has been abysmal hence abysmal stock performance under Tillerson. Topping off nanagement'a dismal execution was the disasterous XTO acquisition. Again if one can read and can look at a stock chart what I am saying is obvious. Under present management Exxon is a big, no growth chronic underperformer that can't get out of its own way. Over this time, billions of dollars if shareholder wealth has been destroyed. I could go on but I'll try to summarize so anyone can understand: Exxon performance before Tillerson-great; Exxon performance under Tillerson over the last 5 years (which is NOT a short time period)-dismal. How many more 5 year periods of abysmal performance must shareholders put up with?

    Stock seems to tank every afternoon and can't stay above 95. Why?

  • dlavine78 by dlavine78 Mar 3, 2014 1:46 PM Flag

    Since Rex Tillerson became CEO Exxon has been the worst stock of theDow 30 and the very worst performing oil stock. This is no coincidence. Under his management earnings and production shortfalls have occurred almost every single quarter . The company is still paying the price for the awful XTO acquisition
    at an absurd premium. Exxon shareholders, many of whom are retirees have paid a huge price for this man's idiocy.

  • dlavine78 by dlavine78 Mar 3, 2014 1:31 PM Flag

    Same story nearly every day now for 6 years. Market up, market down, oil up, oil down this piece of garbage is always the very worst performing oil stock and is the WORST dow stock over the last 6 years. Dow is up thousands of points and this stock is no higher than it was in 2008. The world's largest oil company is run by a hopeless incompetent who has destroyed hundreds of billions in she holder wealth. This guy couldn't run a lemonade stand. Tillerson is a total cipher. How such an incmpetant could wind up CEO of this company is one of the great mysteries of American business.
