The Performance of Exxon Mobil Corporation in the Market

The symbiotic relationship between the macro and microenvironment of a business governs the running and management of the corporation at local and international. Below are some of the ten economic events that have affected the price of the oil barrels, as well as the price of shares in the stock market (Exxon Mobil Corporation, 2015).
In 2014, the quarter four earnings per share stood at 1.56, which was a decrease from 1.91 of the previous year. In the same breath, the revenues dropped from 110.9 billion to 87.3 billion which is a considerably high decrease that affected the company negatively. The decline of the prices of the shares emanated from the poor performance of the company and shareholders thought it wise to dispose of the shares hence decline in the stock market value. The stock market highly determines whether companies will trade with the company, and that is why the company ended up trading at a loss because investors engaged in business elsewhere hence causing a significant negative impact to the company (ExxonMobil, 2006). The decrease in the price of the share culminated in reduced revenue taking into account that the stock market is a source income for trading companies. The decline of a share from 1.912 to 1.56 is considerably high, and that must affect negatively on the corporation. As posited earlier, stock market prices are the guiding parameters for investors who deal with the stock market. An increase or decrease of the capital markets highly depends on the company’s operations. Companies that have good management and supervision will ultimately do well in the stock market compared to those that have problems in the internal environment of a business (Exxon Mobil Corporation, 2014).
Revenue decreased for any business calls for alarm and Exxon Mobil Corporation is not an exemption. A decrease from 110.9 billion to 87.3 billion is not a slight decrease for it translates to 23.6 billion.
