Gulfport Energy Corporation engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and gas in the Louisiana Gulf Coast and the Permian Basin in west Texas. The company also holds indirect interests in the Alberta Oil Sands in Canada. The company has a P/E ratio of 26.9, below the average energy industry P/E ratio of 30 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 16. TheStreet Ratings rates Gulfport Energy as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.
