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 48x. In other words, ConocoPhillips shares trade at around 48x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
ConocoPhillips's PEG ratio
ConocoPhillips's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.2042. 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 ConocoPhillips's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ConocoPhillips's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ConocoPhillips's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting ConocoPhillips shares
There are currently 21.3 million ConocoPhillips shares held short by investors – that's known as ConocoPhillips's "short interest". This figure is 24.6% up from 17.1 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 10.0 million). ConocoPhillips's SIR currently stands at 2.13. In other words for every 100,000 ConocoPhillips shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2130 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ConocoPhillips shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0159% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ConocoPhillips shares, roughly 16 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.
ConocoPhillips's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like ConocoPhillips.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
ConocoPhillips's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 34.83
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ConocoPhillips's overall score of 34.83 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 60th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
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.).
ConocoPhillips's environmental score
Environmental score: 19.94/100
ConocoPhillips's environmental score of 19.94 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ConocoPhillips is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ConocoPhillips's social score
Social score: 11.86/100
ConocoPhillips's social score of 11.86 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ConocoPhillips is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
ConocoPhillips's governance score
Governance score: 12.03/100
ConocoPhillips's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ConocoPhillips is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
ConocoPhillips's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ConocoPhillips scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that ConocoPhillips has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
ConocoPhillips share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.2% of net profits
Recently ConocoPhillips has paid out, on average, around 1.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ConocoPhillips shareholders could enjoy a 2.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ConocoPhillips's case, that would currently equate to about $1.71 per share.
While ConocoPhillips's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ConocoPhillips is investing more in its future growth.
ConocoPhillips's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have ConocoPhillips's shares ever split?
ConocoPhillips's shares were split on a 1311791:10 basis on 1 May 2012. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1311791 shares. 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 $26.8635 up to $75.52. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
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 1.6185. 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).
ConocoPhillips explores for, produces, transports, and markets crude oil, bitumen, natural gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and natural gas liquids worldwide. The company primarily engages in the conventional and tight oil reservoirs, shale gas, heavy oil, LNG, oil sands, and other production operations. Its portfolio includes unconventional plays in North America; conventional assets in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia; various LNG developments; oil sands assets in Canada; and an inventory of conventional and unconventional exploration prospects. The company was founded in 1917 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas. .
