Exxon Mobil: Sell To Lock In Recent Gains


  • Exxon Mobil has executed brilliantly by expanding its production output counter-cyclically, allowing it to fully benefit from the favorable oil/gas spot prices in 2022.
  • The company also returned much value to its existing shareholders, mostly with its share repurchase programs with more pledged over the next two years.
  • However, we wonder if it warrants the ~20% premium from the declining WTI crude oil and natural gas prices over the past six months.
  • Prudent investors may consider locking in some gains here, with China likely to rely more on Russian oil post-reopening cadence.
  • There is no harm in rebalancing the portfolio at this time of peak recessionary fears in our view.
