Earlier in January, analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch downgraded Exxon Mobil (XOM) to neutral from buy which caused a dip in the oil giant’s shares. Just two days ago, Bank of America made another change by upgrading Exxon Mobil to buy with a price target of $110. As a result, Exxon Mobil’s shares have risen by more than 3% since Thursday and closed at $97.70 on March 28.
