Today is Wednesday, January 8, 2020, and this is your daily oil stocks roundup. Today we’re looking at the valuations of Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE: DVN), Enbridge (NYSE: ENB), and ONEOK (NYSE: OKE).

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE: DVN)

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE: DVN) is a $9.748 billion company today with a one-year return of 4.5%. Let’s look at its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, its enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/CF) ratio, and its debt-to-equity ratio to gauge whether or not it’s a good investment.

The company's P/E ratio of 7.931 is 5.94% lower than the industry average of 8.432. That’s good. A company’s P/E ratio shows its price as a multiple of its earnings per share (EPS). A relatively low P/E ratio is generally an indicator that a company is undervalued.

Devon Energy Corporation's enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/FCF) ratio of -38.97 is below zero. That’s not good.

A company’s EV/FCF ratio measures its enterprise value (market cap adjusted for cash holdings and debt) against its free cash flow (how much money the company has after all of its cash outflows). An EV/FCF ratio below zero could indicate that one of these numbers is negative.

The debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of Devon Energy Corporation has decreased by 3.41% over the last year. That's good.

A company’s D/E ratio equals its total liabilities divided by its shareholder equity. It’s a measure of a company’s financial leverage. A declining D/E ratio indicates that a company is decreasing its debt burden over time, while a rising ratio indicates that a company is taking on more debt over time.
