Is ConocoPhillips under- or over-valued?

Valuing ConocoPhillips stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ConocoPhillips's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

ConocoPhillips's P/E ratio

ConocoPhillips's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, ConocoPhillips shares trade at around 14x 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.

ConocoPhillips's EBITDA

ConocoPhillips's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.7 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a ConocoPhillips's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell ConocoPhillips shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "COP.US"

  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".

There are currently 17.2 million ConocoPhillips shares held short by investors – that's known as ConocoPhillips's "short interest". This figure is 59.9% down from 42.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ConocoPhillips shares can be evaluated.

ConocoPhillips's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ConocoPhillips's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ConocoPhillips shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ConocoPhillips shares traded daily (recently around 11.9 million). ConocoPhillips's SIR currently stands at 1.44. In other words for every 100,000 ConocoPhillips shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1440 shares are currently held short.

However ConocoPhillips's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ConocoPhillips shares, or, against the total number of tradable ConocoPhillips shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ConocoPhillips's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ConocoPhillips shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ConocoPhillips shares, roughly 13 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 ConocoPhillips.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like ConocoPhillips is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ConocoPhillips shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ConocoPhillips shares which in turn could have impacted ConocoPhillips's share price.

ConocoPhillips share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ConocoPhillips's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.9935 up to $52.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

COP.US volatility(beta: 1.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ConocoPhillips's is 1.8111. This would suggest that ConocoPhillips's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
