Valuing Murphy Oil Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Murphy Oil Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Murphy Oil Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Murphy Oil Corporation shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Murphy Oil Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.4813. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Murphy Oil Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 17.2 million Murphy Oil Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Murphy Oil Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 18.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Murphy Oil Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Murphy Oil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Murphy Oil Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Murphy Oil Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Murphy Oil Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.68. In other words for every 100,000 Murphy Oil Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3680 shares are currently held short.
However Murphy Oil Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Murphy Oil Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Murphy Oil Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Murphy Oil Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Murphy Oil Corporation shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1918% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Murphy Oil Corporation shares, roughly 192 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Murphy Oil Corporation.
