Shorting Exxon Mobil Corporation shares

There are currently 42.5 million Exxon Mobil Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% up from 41.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Exxon Mobil Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 22.7 million). Exxon Mobil Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.87. In other words for every 100,000 Exxon Mobil Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1870 shares are currently held short.

However Exxon Mobil Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exxon Mobil Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exxon Mobil Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exxon Mobil Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exxon Mobil Corporation shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Exxon Mobil Corporation.

Exxon Mobil Corporation'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 Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Exxon Mobil Corporation'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 Corporation'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 Corporation 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 Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 12.19/100

Exxon Mobil Corporation'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 Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's social score

Social score: 9.41/100

Exxon Mobil Corporation'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 Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 7.23/100

Exxon Mobil Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Exxon Mobil Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Exxon Mobil Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Exxon Mobil Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Exxon Mobil Corporation share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.18% of net profits

Recently Exxon Mobil Corporation has paid out, on average, around 2.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.61% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Exxon Mobil Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.48 per share.

While Exxon Mobil Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Exxon Mobil Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Exxon Mobil Corporation's shares ever split?

Exxon Mobil Corporation'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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Exxon Mobil Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Exxon Mobil Corporation's share price.

Exxon Mobil Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Exxon Mobil Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.002 up to $63.9569. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XOM.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Exxon Mobil Corporation's is 1.3323. This would suggest that Exxon Mobil Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
