Valuation


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 3.02 indicates valuation on par with the S&P 500 average of 2.74 and a discount versus the industry average of 3.68. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, DREAMWORKS ANIMATION INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.

Neutral. The absence of a valid P/E ratio happens when a stock can not be valued on the basis of a negative stream of earnings.

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

 

Premium. 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.

DWA is trading at a significant premium to its peers.

Premium. A higher price-to-projected earnings ratio than its peers can signify a more expensive stock or higher future growth expectations.

DWA is trading at a significant premium to its peers.

 

Neutral. The PEG ratio is the stock’s P/E divided by the consensus estimate of long-term earnings growth. Faster growth can justify higher price multiples.

Discount. A lower price-to-book ratio makes a stock more attractive to investors seeking stocks with lower market values per dollar of equity on the balance sheet.

DWA is trading at a discount to its peers.

 

Higher. Elevated earnings growth rates can lead to capital appreciation and justify higher price-to-earnings ratios.

DWA is expected to have an earnings growth rate that significantly exceeds its peers.

Premium. In the absence of P/E and P/B multiples, the price-to-sales ratio can display the value investors are placing on each dollar of sales.

DWA is trading at a significant premium to its industry.

 

Lower. A sales growth rate that trails the industry implies that a company is losing market share.

DWA trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
