Exxon Mobil (NYSE: XOM) is planning to wind down oil production in Equatorial Guinea and leave the country when its license is up in 2026, according to a Reuters report on Monday.

Stock Price: Shares of Exxon Mobil are up 72% this year but are basically flat in the last 30 days.

Final Thoughts: Exxon Mobil has not commented on the Reuters report yet. The company is dealing with some headwinds as the price of crude oil drops to its lowest levels all year. This drop has left some investors wondering if the oil trade, which was in growth mode during the first half of 2022, is now taking a break.

Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP) reaffirmed its quarterly guidance on Monday of net sales to be between $2.135 billion to $2.177 billion, which sent shares up 0.63% in after-hours trading.

Final Thoughts: It’s been a rough year for semiconductor stocks. Microchip’s stock is down 15%. The company will present at the Credit Suisse 26th Annual Technology Conference today.
