SELL. 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 1.37 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.73 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 15.68. The price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but well 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.
