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. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.58 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.93 and a premium versus the industry average of 3.43. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, HALLIBURTON CO proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
