Is ConocoPhillips Fairly Valued?

COP: ConocoPhillips logo

ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), one of the largest independent oil & gas companies, posted a strong set of results for its year ended December ’17. The company’s top line displayed significant improvement backed by a recovery in the commodities market and we expect this trend to continue over the next year. The Organization of Petroleum and Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Non-OPEC allies’ decision to extend its output cuts would continue to benefit ConocoPhillips and based on our current estimates, we expect the stock to be fairly valued $63, ~16% higher than the current market price. Additionally, the company’s ongoing cost reduction initiatives are expected to benefit its EBITDA margin throughout 2018.

Our price estimate is based on the assumption of $36.16 bil revenue in FY’18 and an EBITDA margin of ~18%. We expect a P/EBITDA Multiple of 11.91, slightly higher than that for FY’17. Average share count is estimated at 1.2 bil.
