HOUSTON (AP) - Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) on Friday posted the largest annual profit by a U.S. company - $40.6 billion - as the world's largest publicly traded oil company benefited from historic crude prices at year's end.

Exxon also set a U.S. record for the biggest quarterly profit, posting net income of $11.7 billion for the final three months of 2007, besting its own mark of $10.71 billion in the fourth quarter of 2005.

The previous record for annual profit was $39.5 billion, which Exxon Mobil reported for 2006.

Analysts believe the US has overstretched its military throughout the
world, focusing on policing the world and the wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq and is therefore putting the American nation at risk.

3. Disgusting but not surprising.
 And how much of this profit is going into R&D of alternative fuels, the clean production of these or is the profit just going into the pockets of execs who care for nothing except their luxurious lifestyles?

8. Now will they share some of the profits w/all their employees
 Edited on Fri Feb-01-08 10:13 AM by Hawaii Hiker
or just the top brass...

Most of Exxon's employees will probably get 3-4% raises (along with a lecture from their boss as to that is all the company can afford at this time), while the top executives get 500% increases...

I'd love to know what kind of raises ALL staff is getting at Exxon....


what a bunch of socialist primitives............was that redundant??

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

In the primitives mind all things are steady state in that a business somehow doesn`t require financial input to eventually achieve financial output.
They just simply exist and always have for the sole purpose of providing high paying jobs for some and tax revenue to provide a complete living for the pursest of mind primitives who shouldn`t have to work.

They will never understand how this simply can`t work but that is why they are primitives.

Guess they overlooked that $106 BILLION that Exxon-Mobil paid in taxes last year too.

Remember, the primitives also believe that economics is a "zero-sum" game.....therefore all of Exxon's profits just had to come out of the pockets of some poor homeless wretch living somewhere in southern California.....

Yes, let's nationalize the oil companies and start paying $10/gallon...........if you can find it................after you have stayed in line for hours..........to get your rationed 4 gallons.................on every other day.

The DUmmys sure didn't learn from the total failure of communism in every country that ever attempted it.

Capitalism the worst system ever, except for every other one.
