  • 2/9/2017 – Exxon Mobil was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “sell” rating. According to Zacks, “During fourth-quarter 2016, Exxon Mobil’s downstream segment suffered due to lower refining and marketing margins. We believe that oil price recovery during the fourth quarter, owing to OPEC’s decision to curb output, lowered margins for the refining businesses. During the last one year, the company’s stock has underperformed the Zacks categorized Oil & Gas-International Integrated industry. Moreover, oil and natural gas output for the company is much lower than the production level 10 years ago. Decreasing capital spending will likely result in further deterioration of output. Moreover, the company’s dividend yield is one of the lowest among major energy firms. Also the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the company’s first-quarter 2017 has been revised downward over the last 60 days.”
