    Merrill on Exxon...

    " If the firm assumes flat $45 per barrel West Texas Intermediate (WTI) in perpetuity oil, net debt peaks at $39 billion at year-end 2017, compared to $30 billion at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 (2QFY15, ended June 30, 2015). However, this implies a peak net debt to capitalization that increases just 3% to 17% and well below peak levels carried during the last downturn."

    Who thinks we will have $55 WTI in December 2019??
