Exxon Stock (XOM) Reached the Critical Event Level

 Published: November 18th, 2021

Exxon reported the Q3 earnings report on 29 October at $1.58 a share with a revenue of $75.79 billion. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Exxon investors have remained committed to dividends, even by slashing spendings. Moreover, the company said they have a plan to increase the shareholder’s distribution by buying back nearly $10 billion valued XOM stocks.

According to Exxon’s CEO, they plan to increase spending on the lower-emission energy sector to have a strong return with stable development. The overall annual capital expenditure would be between $20 billion to $25 billion for the coming years.

Exxon earnings and XOM stock have a positive correlation with the Crude Oil price. Recently, US Oil reached the critical resistance of $80.00 level for the first time since 2014, while Brent Oil has seen a new high price since 2018. As the current Crude Oil price is already at a multi-year high with a volatile market structure, any rebound in the oil price would be an alarming sign for XOM investors.
