Financial Analysis

APACHE CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. APACHE CORP has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.42 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year, indicating improving cash flow.

SELL. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 2.72 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.09 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 80.37. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, APACHE CORP seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
