Exxon Mobil (XOM) closed the most recent trading day at $64.35, moving +1.95% from the previous trading session. This move outpaced the S&P 500's daily gain of 0.48%.

Prior to today's trading, shares of the oil and natural gas company had gained 9.6% over the past month. This has lagged the Oils-Energy sector's gain of 13.33% and outpaced the S&P 500's gain of 3.46% in that time.

Investors will be hoping for strength from XOM as it approaches its next earnings release, which is expected to be October 29, 2021. On that day, XOM is projected to report earnings of $1.55 per share, which would represent year-over-year growth of 961.11%. Our most recent consensus estimate is calling for quarterly revenue of $73.3 billion, up 58.66% from the year-ago period.

XOM's full-year Zacks Consensus Estimates are calling for earnings of $5.03 per share and revenue of $274.42 billion. These results would represent year-over-year changes of +1624.24% and +51.2%, respectively.

Any recent changes to analyst estimates for XOM should also be noted by investors. Recent revisions tend to reflect the latest near-term business trends. As such, positive estimate revisions reflect analyst optimism about the company's business and profitability.

Research indicates that these estimate revisions are directly correlated with near-term share price momentum. Investors can capitalize on this by using the Zacks Rank. This model considers these estimate changes and provides a simple, actionable rating system.
