Raymond James analyst Pavel Molchanov upgraded ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) from Underperform to Market Perform.

The analyst comments "With the recent downdraft in the stock (off ~10% over the past month), we think it's the right time to get less negative in our outlook for XOM. 1Q21 earnings indicators show a solid measure of improvement, pushing the company in the right direction of that part of the "show me" story. Also, despite a higher-than-peer valuation (FCF, EV/EBITDA), we think the risk/reward skews less negative in the context of our relative optimism on oil prices and the likelihood for a return to normal in downstream (with XOM's leverage to global chemicals markets an added upside "kicker" in a bull case)."
