Another Stock Dropped by Technology Renaissance
After a troubled end of 2013 and a very successful 2014 beginning, Imperial Oil (IMO) may be reaching a growth ceiling. Overall, 2013 resulted in declining revenues and net income, aggravated by a great debt increment and reduced cash flow.

Fortunately for other investors, the stock's face value recovered through February and exceeded last December’s value.
