Valuation


BUY. 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 2.81 indicates valuation on par with the S&P 500 average of 2.56 and a discount versus the industry average of 3.36. 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, GREENBRIER COMPANIES INC proves to trade at a discount 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.

GBX'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.

GBX is trading at a significant discount to its peers.

GBX is trading at a valuation on par with 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.

GBX is trading at a discount to its peers.

 

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

However, GBX is expected to significantly trail its peers on the basis of its earnings growth rate.

Discount. 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.

GBX is trading at a significant discount to its industry on this measurement.

 

Higher. A sales growth rate that exceeds the industry implies that a company is gaining market share.

GBX has a sales growth rate that significantly exceeds its peers.
