Learn more. TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Anadarko Petroleum as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, compelling growth in net income and solid stock price performance. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 7.5%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- The gross profit margin for ANADARKO PETROLEUM CORP is currently very high, coming in at 71.66%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 27.00% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $2,502.00 million or 25.16% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -15.85%.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry. The net income increased by 1143.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$89.00 million to $929.00 million.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 1116.66% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 35.04% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
