Marathon Oil: Dependent on High Energy Prices

Marathon Oil Corp. (MRO) explores, produces, and markets liquid hydrocarbons and natural gas. It operates through these two segments: United States (U.S.) and International. The U.S. segment is involved in oil and gas exploration, development, and production activities in the United States. The International segment engages in oil and gas development and production across international locations, mostly in Equatorial Guinea and the United Kingdom. I am bearish on MRO stock. Its sales growth has been in decline, the company turned unprofitable in 2020, and its financial health is moderate. The dividend yield is also not impressive.
