Financial Analysis

CONOCOPHILLIPS's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. CONOCOPHILLIPS has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.02 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.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 12.04% from the same quarter last year. Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties in the near future.

HOLD. This stock’s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.62 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.98 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 34.50. The current price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CONOCOPHILLIPS proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.

COP significantly trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
