Anadarko Petroleum Corp.'s current Price/Book of 2.0 is about median in its peer group. The market expects the company to grow faster than the median of its chosen peers (PE of 26.0 compared to peer median of 10.5) and to improve its current ROE of 8.1% which is below its peer median of 10.5%. Thus, the market seems to expect a turnaround in Anadarko's current performance.
The company's relatively high profit margins (currently 12.4% vs. peer median of 8.4%) are burdened by asset inefficiency with asset turns of 0.3x compared to the peer median of 0.4x. Overall, this suggests a margin driven operating model relative to its peers. APC's net margin is greater than (but within one standard deviation of) its five-year average net margin of 5.2%.
