Exxon Mobil (XOM) is the world's largest integrated oil and gas corporation and the second largest corporation in the world based on market cap, behind only Apple (AAPL). Exxon Mobil holds the record for highest profits in one year by a corporation. In fact, it has the top 5 highest years of profit ever for a corporation. Exxon Mobil has grown revenue by about 4.5% per year over the last 10 years. Energy use is expanding globally, with the biggest gains coming from Asia. Energy demand will grow slowly for the foreseeable future.

Exxon is a strong dividend paying company which offers shareholders a CAGR in the range of 9% resulting from growth (~4%), dividends (2.59%), and share repurchases (~2.75%). Exxon is a shareholder friendly corporation that has increased its dividend for 31 years consecutively. Exxon's size and position in the oil and gas industry gives it a strong competitive advantage. Exxon will remain a solid investment as long as the world runs on oil and gas.
