ALLERGAN PLC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown sales and net income significantly, outpacing the average growth rates of competitors within its industry. ALLERGAN PLC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.42 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 170.34% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.

HOLD. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.17 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.76 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 6.81. The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, ALLERGAN PLC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
