ExxonMobil Tops Fortune 500 for '08

Women, minorities hardest hit.

45 billion in profits on 442 billion in revenue, or around 10% if my slide rule ain't lying (it ain't).

Next up, Wal-Mart, with slightly tighter margins or a 3% profit of 13.4 billion on 405 billion in revenue.

Chevron (8%)
ConocoPhillips ( -7 %, ouch, bad gas)
GE (9%)
GM, Ford (more ouch)
AT&T (10%), etc.


For the life of me I cannot understand why the monster XOM doesn't just jack up the price and pull in 50 or 60% pre-tax?

It's just there for the taking Rex. Invisible hand my ass.
