Exxon Mobil: Does a prolonged earnings slide mean anything?

See how XOM's price mostly follows its earnings

Looking at XOM

Companies’ stock prices generally go up when earnings do.  So, when faced with a stalwart household name whose earnings have been steadily going down for two years, what should we do?   Consider Exxon Mobil.  Since it has some history (Rockerfeller founded Standard Oil in 1870), we can take the long view.  


Avoid stocks like XOM
