Is Exxon Mobil under- or over-valued?
Valuing Exxon Mobil stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Exxon Mobil's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Exxon Mobil's P/E ratio
Exxon Mobil's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Exxon Mobil shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Exxon Mobil's PEG ratio
Exxon Mobil's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5852. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Exxon Mobil's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Exxon Mobil's EBITDA
Exxon Mobil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $69.7 billion.

Exxon Mobil's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Exxon Mobil.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Exxon Mobil's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 31.83
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Exxon Mobil's overall score of 31.83 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 64th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Exxon Mobil is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Exxon Mobil's environmental score
Environmental score: 12.19/100
Exxon Mobil's environmental score of 12.19 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Exxon Mobil is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Exxon Mobil's social score
Social score: 9.41/100
Exxon Mobil's social score of 9.41 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Exxon Mobil is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Exxon Mobil's governance score
Governance score: 7.23/100
Exxon Mobil's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Exxon Mobil is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Exxon Mobil's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Exxon Mobil scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Exxon Mobil has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Exxon Mobil share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.77% of net profits
Recently Exxon Mobil has paid out, on average, around 35.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Exxon Mobil shareholders could enjoy a 4.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Exxon Mobil's case, that would currently equate to about $3.51 per share.
While Exxon Mobil's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Exxon Mobil may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Exxon Mobil's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Exxon Mobil's shares ever split?
Exxon Mobil's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 July 2001. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Exxon Mobil shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Exxon Mobil shares which in turn could have impacted Exxon Mobil's share price.
Exxon Mobil share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Exxon Mobil's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.1972 up to $104.5542. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Exxon Mobil's is 1.0611. This would suggest that Exxon Mobil's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
