Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
Exxon Mobil Corp. and other Energy / Oil & Gas Companies are tracking well. Although (XOM) remains in a strong Rally it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics. Accurately Forecasting (XOM) has not been an easy task since the lows of 2009. It took a big hit in early 2011 and I moved to Cash, of about 20% and recovered as was Forecast.
Forecasted Performance - - - Bullish Cycle - - Vulnerable to the Downside:
The below Table is for your review, questions and perhaps thoughts. If you are seeking, what I call "Pazazz Performance" - - please Email me to open a dialog.
Typically, "Pazazz Performance" does not come from Companies like (XOM). In good times this conservative giant does the job quite well along with paying a decent dividend. A GIANT can and HAS in the past - Fallen Hard! (See the below Chart)

Forecasted Bullish "Alerts"
At this time (XOM) remains in a Bullish mode and has produced an annualized profit - over the past few years of about +18%. (that's per year - not including dividends).
It, however is currently giving -- both Fundamental and Technical - - Bearish "Warnings" that if ignored will be costly.

Thanks for your interest in my Forecasts - work / analytics . . .
For me there is but one Caveat for "Investing Wisely." It IS a FACT that - All securities Cycle in both Bullish and Bearish Markets. I am - Primarily a Bull - but when a Company such as (XOM) is looking Bearish I pay great attention to my Forecasted "Warnings." You should know that there are ALWAYS - - Energy / Oil & Gas Companies that are Very Strong Buys on my Bullish and Favorable "Asset Management" List. Being in - love - with a company ( be it XOM or AAPL, etc. ) is definitely not "Investing Wisely."
My Current Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon request).
If you own or are considering owning Oil & Gas Companies, the securities are definitely both strong and weak. Exxon Mobil Corp. is currently strong Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, there I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."
My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.
Fundamentally - ( weighting - 40% ): My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (XOM) are not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources. Plainly stated they are Improving and then Descending again. This does not make for a positive fundamental valuation of any Company for a long-term Hold.
Technically - ( weighting - 35% ): Even with this fine Company, my Indicators are notably breaking down. It is only currently slightly off its highs of $95 selling for $88. The current rally is in place and at its completion will tell a compelling story as to the future direction of the price of (XOM).
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (XOM) !
