Financial Analysis


VENAXIS INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. VENAXIS INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 17.00 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. APPY managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 27.14% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.

Valuation


SELL. 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 0.48 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.51 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 10.43. 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, VENAXIS INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.

APPY's P/E is negative making this valuation measure meaningless.

 

Neutral. The P/CF ratio, a stock’s price divided by the company's cash flow from operations, is useful for comparing companies with different capital requirements or financing structures.
