Most of its revenue, $424.4 billion, was generated from the downstream segment, while the upstream segment contributed only $94.55 billion in revenue in 2012. In terms of geography, Shell derived most of its revenue from two main geographical segments — Europe ($184.2 billion) and Asia, Oceania, Africa ($156.3 billion).
In 2012, Shell had around 13.6 billion BOE in its proved reserves, less than BP plc (ADR) (NYSE:BP)’s proved reserves of more than 17.7 billion BOE. Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) has the highest proved reserves among the three, at around 25.2 billion BOE.
At $66 per share, Shell is worth around $208 billion on the market. It is valued quite cheaply at only 4.24 EV/EBITDA. What investors might like about Shell is the fact that it is currently paying shareholders dividends with a juicy yield of 4.7%.
My Foolish take
Both Halliburton and Shell could be good stocks to buy at their current prices. Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) is relatively cheap compared to its peer, Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE:BHI). Shell, on the other hand, has quite a cheap valuation and offers a juicy dividend yield to its shareholders.
