Performance last year
We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • Murphy Oil has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Murphy Oil used its assets less efficiently than the Europe Oil and Gas industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Murphy Oil has become profitable over the past 3 years. This is considered to be a significant improvement in its use of capital (Return on Capital Employed).

MUQ Health

 How is Murphy Oil's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Murphy Oil's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Murphy Oil is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Murphy Oil's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Murphy Oil's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.3x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
