2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Murphy Oil Corp

Mason Hawkins Comments on Murphy Oil - Feb 11, 2015

Murphy (MUR) was down 20% in the year after an 11% decline in the fourth quarter. CEO Roger Jenkins took actions to recognize value including selling a 30% stake in Malaysian assets at a price above our appraisal. Murphy also bought back shares in 2014 and has authorization for more. The sharp decline in oil prices most heavily affected Murphy’s ownership in Syncrude’s Canadian oil sands, which represented less than 15% of our appraisal before oil’s drop and less today.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Murphy Oil - Oct 20, 2014

Over the last three months, Murphy Oil (MUR) declined 14%. CEO Roger Jenkins made value accretive moves, announcing sales of its UK downstream assets and of 30% of the company’s Malaysian assets at a price above our appraisal. Moreover, as the shares became more discounted, the company initiated a share repurchase program, a move that Jenkins properly views as buying their proven barrels of oil for much less than it would cost to drill new wells or buy other plays.

Murphy Oil Corp was originally incorporated in Louisiana in 1950 as Murphy Corporation. It was reincorporated in Delaware in 1964. It is an oil and gas exploration and production company. The Company is in the process of transitioning from an integrated oil company to an enterprise entirely focused on oil and gas exploration and production activities. The Company's exploration and production activities are subdivided into five geographic segments, including the United States, Canada, Malaysia, the Republic of the Congo and all other countries. The Company's exploration and production business explores for and produces crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. The Company's exploration and production management team in Houston, Texas, directs the Company's exploration and production activities. In the United States, the Company has production of oil and/or natural gas from fields in the Eagle Ford Shale area of South Texas and in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. In Canada, the Company owns an interest in three non-operated assets - the Hibernia and Terra Nova fields offshore Newfoundland in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin and Syncrude Canada Ltd. in northern Alberta. In addition, the Company owns interests in one heavy oil area and two natural gas areas in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. In Malaysia, the Company has majority interests in eight separate production sharing contracts (PSCs). The Company serves as the operator of all these areas other than the unitized Kakap-Gumusut field. In Australia, the Company holds eight offshore exploration permits and serves as operator of six of them. The Company currently has interests in two exploration licenses in Indonesia and serves as operator of these concessions.
