Either the dynamics of its sector place it in a difficult position or management's executition is to blame for its disappointing performance.Apache Corp has a Piotroski F Score of 6 out of 9. The F Score examines changes in profitability, leverage, liquidity, and operating efficiency. Interest coverage of 0x, a debt/equity ratio of 106% and a Moat Rank of 312 translate to a weak Financial Strength score.

This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 464. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Apache Corp will not appeal to momentum investors.

 growth
A company's growth metrics are less important than its valuation, moat, and financial strength. However, a check on growth can be a good way to avoid companies in secular decline. The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the bottom third of S&P500 companies. Its -179.8% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -20.4% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of -25.6% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
