Exxon Boosts Quarterly Dividend After Four Fold Increase In Q3 Earnings

Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE: XOM) has posted a Q3 profit of $4.45 per share, a robust increase over $1.58 a year ago versus the consensus of $3.65. But the company's revenue, at $112.07 billion, jumped 52% Y/Y, missing the $115.60 billion analysts were expecting.

Q3 earnings and cash flow from operating activities increased to $19.7 billion and $24.4 billion, respectively, as strong volume performance, including record refining volumes, cost control, and higher natural gas realizations, more than offset lower crude realizations and weaker industry refining margins.

Exxon kept its capital investments at $5.73 billion for Q3 and $15.24 billion in 9M.

The Permian delivered record production in the quarter of nearly 560,000 oil-equivalent barrels a day.

Oil-equivalent production in the third quarter was 3.7 million barrels per day, +1.39% Y/Y.

Price Action: XOM shares are up 0.68% at $106.60 during the premarket session on the last check Friday.
