Valuation


SELL. This stock?s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.43 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.74 and a discount versus the industry average of 1.47. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, ANGLOGOLD ASHANTI LTD proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.

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

 

Discount. 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.
