Financial Analysis

CONOCOPHILLIPS's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly 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. CONOCOPHILLIPS has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.89 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 9.55% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.

HOLD. 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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.51 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.07 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 79.95. The current price-to-sales ratio is similar to the S&P 500 average, but it is below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CONOCOPHILLIPS proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
