Exxon Mobil (XOM) Looks Like A Good Buy Here

21 December 2009 No Comment

Taking a look at the 2009 chart of Exxon Mobile Corporation (XOM) reveals a pretty strong trend line support.

While typically not the type of company I am looking to in the energy sector (too big, not that high of a dividend yield), Exxon is still a great company and their recent acquisition of XTO Energy will be a good investment over the long term in my opinion.

I think it’s a pretty safe buy at current levels.  Put a stop loss in just under the trend line, in case the trend breaks.  Otherwise, you might be good for a pop of a few bucks a share if it bounces off support as its done this year.

Disclosure: I own a small stake in XOM and might be adding at current levels.  My XOM holding is a part of the oil story that I’m following in my Major Trends.
