BIOTELEMETRY INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2014 has decreased 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. BIOTELEMETRY INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.09 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 2.77% from the same quarter last year. Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties 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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 3.42 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.75 and a discount versus the industry average of 3.72. The price-to-sales ratio is below the S&P 500 average, but well above the industry average. The valuation analysis reveals that, BIOTELEMETRY INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
