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 3.84 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.81 and a premium versus the industry average of 2.65. The price-to-sales ratio is similar to the S&P 500 average, but it is significantly below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, HALLIBURTON CO proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
