3 Reasons Not to Sell ExxonMobil Stock

Rising debt levels and mega capital spending plans in an unfavorable oil price environment led to a steep fall in the stock’s price over the past few years. Its removal from the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index has further aggravated investors’ concerns about the oil giant, which at one time was the largest listed company by market capitalization. ExxonMobil stock has fallen more than 40% in 2020. But there are reasons why you shouldn’t sell this stock just now.
