Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) is one of the world’s largest publicly traded international oil and gas companies. But how does Exxon stock rate?
Exxon Mobil uses cutting-edge technology to find, develop and deliver energy to people and economies around the world.
It’s an American multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Irving, Texas. It is the largest direct descendant of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company and was formed on November 30, 1999 by the merger of Exxon (formerly the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey) and Mobil (formerly the Standard Oil Company of New York).
Exxon and the Global Energy Market
Exxon operates in more than 70 countries and has a diverse portfolio of upstream, downstream and chemical businesses.
It relies on the global oil market for its revenue and profit. The company’s upstream segment is responsible for exploring, developing and producing crude oil and natural gas. Exxon Mobil’s downstream segment refines crude oil into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other products.
The company’s chemical business manufactures petrochemicals used in plastics, detergents and other products. Global oil market declines hurt Exxon stock. A fall in oil prices leads to lower revenue and profit for the company.
Exxon Mobil is also affected by geopolitical events that can disrupt production and transportation of crude oil. For example, its operations in Libya were shut down due to the country’s civil war. Its business, and Exxon stock, is affected by the global oil market.
