The company has a P/E ratio of 10.3, below the average energy industry P/E ratio of 10.5 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Exxon Mobil Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

Holding the Dow back today was United Technologies (NYSE:UTX), which lagged the broader Dow index with a $1.25 decline (-1.5%) bringing the stock to $83.29.

TheStreet Ratings rates United Technologies as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, increase in stock price during the past year and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.
