Alternative ways to invest in Continental Resources

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Continental Resources), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Continental Resources is a major part of the NYSE, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Continental Resources under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Continental Resources P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Continental Resources's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Continental Resources shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Continental Resources's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8104. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Continental Resources's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Continental Resources's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $6.9 billion (£5.5 billion).

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