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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 2.20 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.99 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 38.31. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM CORP seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
