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 4.76 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.75 and a discount versus the industry average of 5.75. 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, INFOBLOX INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
