  • Exxon Mobil misses by $0.01 [View news story]
    Although, I'm certain that XOM can free up more to the shareholders, I'm still pretty much satisfied getting the modest .63 a share return ($2.52 annual). This company is a strong and steady, rest your head on a pillow at night company. I'm still waiting on that one day, that they will oil the bends in their wallet and share more of the profits.

  • Coca-Cola Yields 3% And Everyone Should Know It [View article]
    Don't forget Coke split 2 to 1 in August of 2012. Like most Americans, I can handle the slow, steady, growing income. Say what you will, Coke is still the REAL THING.

  • Exxon insider sales surge in December, nearly equaling all of 2012 [View news story]
    Looking at the past, it normally splits right around $120. We have a ways to go.

  • Selling Exxon Mobil Could Preserve Capital In The Near Term [View article]
    And guess what Gerry? They pay Mr. T-Rex big time bucks for this performance. I was surprised to see that the board loosened their wallet, a little this past quarter and gave the shareholders some of the crumbs.

  • Exxon Mobil (XOM) says CEO Rex Tillerson’s total compensation reached $40.2M last year, up 15% Y/Y, with much of the increase due to a change in pension value and other deferred compensation earnings. Tillerson's salary rose to $2.5M from $2.4M; effective Jan. 1, his salary increased to $2.7M. [View news story]
    Hronald, it not only sounds like a lot of money, IT IS a lot of money. I had 28 years with the company. I started in Operations, advanced to Stillman, and then supervision. When they went from running the refinery with control knobs to high tech computers, I was there. Do you think that Mr. Tillerson could handle my job or yours. I can promise you that he couldn't. He is talented in what he does, just like the thousands of other XOM employees. It seems that everyone is missing my whole point on this topic. Do you think that just a Pitcher or a Quarterback on a team can win games all by their selves, of course not. They may be more valuable then a first basemen, a catcher, a running back or a tight end, but all are part of the whole team. And by the way, I think they are overpaid as well. It's not a problem to give them a "reasonable" higher percentage of the pie in order to encourage them to stay with the team, but come on, can you honestly believe that the shareholders of Exxon are not being ripped off? He receives in one year what most folks don't earn in a lifetime. Something wrong with that picture!

    Excuse me, but what does that have to do with the price of beans!! It doesn't matter if I retired from a chicken farm or a corner grocery store. My efforts and the efforts of the other employees, while working for XOM, contributed to how they got to where they are today. One individual can not take all the credit for a team effort. No matter how you slice the pie, or what "you" think, the shareholders of XOM are being short changed. And once again, if you have an excess in funds, I'll be happy to take it ALL off your hands.

    Nice to hear from a Democrat. There logic and statements always make a lot of sense, and they are so easy to pick out of a crowd. By the way, anytime you feel you have an excess in funds, please look me up, I'll be more then happy to take some off of your hands. Obviously you missed my whole point.

    I worked for XOM for years and am now retired. I have been complaining about the CEO pay scale for just about as many years that I have worked for them. There is no earthly reason why "anyone" should be getting that kind of money. This is simply robbing the shareholders of their investment in the company. Sure it's good to have someone running the company that is doing well for the overall health of XOM, but there has to be a line that is drawn somewhere. Every time I receive any voting material in the mail, I vote against them all, and make a comment on the page that until they stop giving our share of the profits to the CEO, I will continue to vote against them. Further more, everything that they suggest I vote for, I vote AGAINST. If we would all stick together on this maybe something will get accomplished. Team effort usually accomplishes great results.

  • Exxon Mobil: Profitability Analysis [View article]
    The only thing negative that I can say about the company is that they hate sharing profits with the shareholders. Chevron is a much smaller company that has been handing out larger dividends then Exxon for years. It is only recently that ExxonMobil has been increasing their dividend yield. They can, and should continue to increase shareholder dividends. They have been giving more then ample bonuses to the CEO's for years, that should have been shared with the shareholders. What the CEO's receive in bonuses and salary in one year is more then the average person can make in a lifetime. That's just not right!

  • Coca-Cola: Time To Rethink Its Dividend [View article]
    It appears that this article backfired on Mr. Carey. If his intent was to get folks to bail of the KO stock, and cause the price to fall so that he could buy on the low side before the split, it didn't work. What he did succeed in doing was lose his reputation. The price of greed is always costly. Hope that you learned from this huge mistake Mr. Carey.

  • 4 Stocks Accelerating Growth In Dividend Payouts [View article]
    It's nice to see that the Exxon Mobil (XOM) board, finally decided to share some of the "crumbs" with its shareholders. A 21% increase in dividends is really great, and I'm hoping that this is just a start. What most of the shareholders don't know is that XOM could be sharing a bigger chunk of the profits with us. The CEO's are racking in a whopping 3M to 6M+ annually in JUST BONUSES. Did you get that, "just bonuses." Their regular annual salary is in the six digit million dollar area. This has been going on year after year for as long as I can remember. None of them seem to have any shame for ripping off the shareholders. Federal laws need to be set into place to stop this super greed outrage.
