Over the next couple of weeks John and David will be reviewing their real-money, 10-Bagger Portfolio. In this video, they take a closer look at ExxonMobil.

Despite some near-term challenges, ExxonMobil remains one of the best-managed energy companies in the world, and it’s committed to returning capital to shareholders. Its latest quarterly results were surprisingly weak operationally. But the company has a diverse portfolio of global investments that will power earnings, and cash flow over the long term. Domestic natural gas continues to be a weakness, as prices remain low. Producers like Chesapeake Energy and Exco Resources are still feeling the stress. Competitor Devon Energy has made a big shift from gas to liquids as a result. What ExxonMobil has in its favor is that it’s a diversified energy company. That’s what helps the company generate so much cash flow that it can pay shareholders in the form of dividends and repurchases.
