#1: Exxon Mobil
The world’s second-largest company by market capitalization has a long history of epic buybacks. Indeed, during the past 10 years, Exxon Mobil (XOM) has spent more than $200 billion on share repurchases.
That has helped make the integrated energy major an outstanding holding for any long-term portfolio. Between price appreciation, buybacks and dividends, XOM is smoking the S&P 500 during the past 10 years, gaining 196% vs. 103% for the broader market.
