Oil giant ExxonMobil shares jumped by nearly 2% in early trading after the Federal Emergency Management Agency declared a state of emergency over Hurricane Harvey.
The increase comes as the company reported a 2% increase in fourth-quarter profits, and the stock is up 5.8% in 2017.
The stock also rose nearly 4% in 2016 and 7.6% in 2015.
ExxonMobil’s shares are up about 4% since the start of the year, when the company announced the hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
ExxonMobil stock has gained more than 10% each of the last five years.

The company’s profit in the first half of 2018 was $6.4 billion, up slightly from $6 billion in the same period last year.
On Thursday, ExxonMobil announced that it will invest $100 million in a new $2 billion refinery in South Carolina.
“The oil business has a very long way to go to catch up to where it was when the hurricane hit,” ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson said in a statement.
“But, we are confident that in the coming months, we will make tremendous progress.
We are also very confident that the American public will recognize that this is not a day to be complacent.”
Expelled from ExxonMobil, a Texas-based oil company, after the hurricanes of 2017 and 2018, former chief executive Rex Tillerson and his son, Tillerson Jr., continue to run the company.
“It’s good for the company to be back and to have a company that is taking the next step forward,” Tillerson said.
“I think that this country is going to need more people who have experience in business, especially with energy and natural resources.”
The company’s stock gained more in 2017 than it did during the entire 2017 and 2016 years.
Exxon shares rose more than 6% in the fourth-week of trading.
After ExxonMobil’s earnings report Thursday, the stock jumped by more than 5% in a matter of minutes, jumping nearly 6% the next day.
The stock has risen nearly 4.5% in each of 2017, 2018, and 2019.
For the fourth quarters of 2018, Exxon stock gained 6.4% and 5.6%, according to FactSet.

A top investment banking analyst has stood by the price of bitcoin for the past three months despite the cryptocurrency being under pressure from regulators.
On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Peter Diamandis, CEO of investment bank Guggenheim Partners, was on a conference call with investors to discuss the possibility of a regulatory push for the cryptocurrency, according to the WSJ.
“Peter Diamantis, a prominent financial services investor and a longtime critic of the digital currency, has been a firm advocate of bitcoin,” the report said.
“His comments have continued to resonate despite the recent rise of bitcoin prices and have been echoed by other prominent financial and technology executives.”
“He is an advocate for a more robust regulatory environment that would make it easier for the technology and financial sectors to continue innovating in ways that are necessary to protect the integrity of the bitcoin protocol,” the WSJD report added.
Diamandas is an outspoken critic of bitcoin and has been outspoken in his criticism of the cryptocurrency’s use.
In April, he was reported to have said, “It’s not going to happen, it’s not a viable thing to do, but it’s a tool in the hands of a few.”
In July, he told The Wall St Journal that bitcoin’s “market cap is more like a house than a company.”
He also called the currency a “fraud” and “fringe” asset in a speech at the London Business School last year.
Dias was also a vocal proponent of digital currencies, and he has said in the past that the cryptocurrency could be used to provide “more transparency” and a “much safer” financial system.
“Digital currencies have tremendous potential to revolutionize financial markets, provide financial transparency and allow financial institutions to better control risks, which would ultimately benefit consumers and businesses,” Dias said in a recent speech.
“I believe they can and should be regulated in a way that helps protect both the integrity and freedom of the financial markets and the security and liquidity of the markets themselves.”
Dias is the second top investment banker at the bank, joining former U.K. finance minister Lord Rees-Mogg.
He has previously been an outspoken supporter of digital currency.
In an interview with The Wall Streeter, Dias explained that he believes digital currencies could help create “a much safer financial system,” according to The Wall Streets Journal.
“It’s a safe and secure way to conduct business,” Diamandsaid.
“It makes the financial system much safer and makes it much more transparent and more secure, and the digital currencies allow you to transact electronically, and it’s very, very easy to transfer money between parties and to do that digitally.
So I think digital currencies are going to have an enormous role to play in the future of finance.”
Diamands position on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies has been consistent.
In August, Diamandedit that he is “open” to regulating bitcoin and that he was “open to” using digital currencies for his own business.
“I am open to using cryptocurrencies to conduct my own business, but not to use them for money laundering or money laundering in any way,” he told the Wall Street Times at the time.
“That’s one of the reasons I’m open to the regulation of digital money.”
In August 2016, he also told Bloomberg that bitcoin was a “good store of value” that was a better store of wealth than gold and silver.
“As a matter of fact, I think it’s the gold standard,” Dios told Bloomberg.
“And I think as a matter as to why it’s been around for so long.
So it’s definitely a better storage medium for us, I guess, than gold.
And I don’t think it has any sort of significant monetary value.
I think if you put it in your pocket and you take it out, it doesn’t have any value.
But I think there’s a lot of reasons why it can be used for that.”
The Wall Street Papers and Diamanders views on bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and digital currencies have also been widely discussed on social media.
“What I think about cryptocurrencies, I actually like,” he tweeted last year in response to a question about digital currencies.
“They’re an alternative to fiat currencies.”

Share this article Share The Twitter stock is soaring as investors seek more upside amid a growing number of negative reports.
The stock is up almost 3 per cent since it started trading on Monday.
Twitter’s stock price has surged almost 70 per cent over the past 12 months, reaching a record high of $16.43 on Tuesday.
But its share price has fallen as its revenue and earnings have slumped.
In fact, its share prices fell more than 80 per cent between January and September, the last two months of the financial year.
This has left many investors feeling burned.
Twitter said in a statement that “while we believe there is more work to do to return to profitability, our share price continues to outperform.”
The stock’s rise is driven by two trends: growth in engagement and a surge in users.
As a result, the company is now using the vast majority of its resources to boost the number of tweets it can handle.
The company said it will invest heavily to boost its social media platforms, including its Messenger and its YouTube.
Twitter added that it has reached $1 billion in revenue in the past five years.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Twitter had been “somewhat transparent about its future growth plans”.
But investors have raised concerns about the way the company has grown.
They say the company doesn’t disclose its growth plans.
This year, the firm says it will spend $100 million to increase its reach and increase the size of its workforce.
Twitter has also been expanding its business model by using the technology it sells to advertisers to make money from its tweets.
But this could lead to more complaints from investors about the company.
Twitter did not say when it plans to launch its new app.
“Twitter has always been a small part of our business, and we continue to have a large share of our users,” Twitter said.
“We are making progress, and are excited about what we can do to grow the platform and become more relevant to our customers and the world around us.”
The company is also exploring a move into mobile.
This week, the social network said it would launch a mobile app in the next few weeks.
Moderna stocks have hit a new all-time high, with the luxury retailer surging over the weekend.
The company said Thursday that its share price had doubled over the past week, thanks to a rebound in demand for its signature collection of shoes, handbags, and other items.
The stock has more than doubled since mid-February, and now trades for about $6.70 per share.
The move comes as other high-profile fashion brands are seeing strong gains.
Gap Inc. jumped from $13.45 a share on Friday to $15.71 on Wednesday.
American Apparel Inc. also rose over the same period, reaching $20.00 per share on Thursday.
But the biggest gains have come from the more obscure brands, with L’Oréal SA, owned by French fashion company LVMH, jumping more than $8 a share to $20 a share.
American Express Inc., the country’s biggest credit card issuer, jumped nearly $1.50 a share after hitting a record high.
The shares rose more than 4% in after hours trading on Thursday, before hitting a new high of $20 per share, according to Bloomberg.
It’s the second-biggest gainer on Wall Street in the past five weeks, after the S&P 500 rose nearly 9% on Thursday and the Nasdaq composite rose 5%.
The rally has fueled concerns about the company’s stock price, as investors are looking for signs that its stock price will continue to climb.
The share price of the fashion giant has more or less tripled in the last five years, and it’s been on a tear.
Its stock price has nearly quadrupled since the end of 2014, and this week it climbed more than 5%.
It has more to offer investors, including the possibility of growth.
“The big question is whether or not this stock will continue this trajectory,” said Mark Rifkin, chief market strategist at BMO Capital Markets.
“That is the big question right now.
And we’re going to see a lot more price action in the next few days.”
But the company isn’t just growing its profits.
The retailer has been boosting its dividend by more than 3% since January.
Its shares rose about $7.50, or 2.5%, to $1,979.35 per share in after-hours trading on Wednesday, the highest in almost two weeks.
“There’s some concern about the sustainability of the dividend and whether the company is sustainable, but I think the company has always been sustainable,” said Rifkins.
“We don’t see a huge opportunity to pull back.”
Moderna shares fell as much as 3% in early trading Thursday, according of Morningstar.
“In my view, there is a lot of room for the stock to increase in the near term, especially given the strong fundamentals that are in the stock,” said James Gorman, chief investment officer at U.S. mutual fund manager Vanguard.
“I’m concerned that the company may be going too far, but that is not the case.”
The stock was up more than 12% over the week, after gaining more than 8% on Friday.
In its most recent earnings call, CEO Michael Belsky made clear he is looking to increase sales.
The retail giant has about 5 million employees worldwide, and sales are up more rapidly than the industry average, according in its earnings report.
