Are These 3 TSX Venture Listed Oil Penny Stocks Overvalued?

While it is true the oil market has seen some recent relief, investors should be wary of these three relatively overvalued oil penny stocks that trade on the TSX Venture Exchange

SmallCapPower | May 10, 2016: After looking at company fundamentals, we like to assign an intrinsic or relative valuation to it in order to pinpoint any price to value inefficiencies. Although the Canadian oil markets continue to be volatility, investors must not lose sight of the numbers. One metric we look for is the EV/Sales multiple, which takes a company’s enterprise value (EV) and compares it to its Sales figure. When compared to a broader sector peer group, this gives us additional insight on how much over or undervalued a company’s stock price is. We believe these three TSX Venture-listed oil penny stocks are currently overvalued by the market as they exhibit EV/Sales metrics far greater than their peer group.
