Insight from TheStreet's Research Team:

Daniel Dicker commented on Exxon Mobil in a recent post on RealMoney.com. Here is what Dicker, had to say about the stock:

Also notice Exxon Mobil (XOM), in the best possible position to make a monster acquisition, stay unnervingly quiet. It knows prices here do not represent value -- and does not want to make the same mistake it made by buying an overpriced XTO Energy in 2010.

I will watch for Exxon's move. It wants to make one, and I believe it will when the time is right. It isn't -- yet.
