In this series, we’ve examined ExxonMobil’s (XOM) 1Q18 estimates, segmental earnings outlook, and stock performance. Now, we’ll examine analyst ratings for ExxonMobil. ExxonMobil (XOM) is a financially strong company with comfortable leverage and a good liquidity position.
ExxonMobil (XOM) posted better-than-expected 1Q17 earnings, which paused the downtrend witnessed in the previous quarter. But XOM’s 50-day moving average (or DMA) stayed below its 200 DMA in 2Q17 and 3Q17. However, in 4Q17, as WTI started rising, XOM stock began surging. Plus, tax reforms were announced in the US, pushing up the stock. Led by the stock upsurge, XOM’s 50-day moving average rose steeply, ultimately crossing over its 200-day moving average in 4Q17.
