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. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount.
|LYV NM||Peers 21.59||LYV 19.25||Peers 40.80|
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.
LYV'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.
LYV is trading at a significant discount to its peers.
|LYV 108.16||Peers 31.34||LYV NA||Peers 0.96|
Premium. A higher price-to-projected earnings ratio than its peers can signify a more expensive stock or higher future growth expectations.
LYV 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.
Ratio not available.
|LYV NA||Peers 6.42||LYV -121.73||Peers 57.59|
Neutral. 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.
Ratio not available.
Lower. Elevated earnings growth rates can lead to capital appreciation and justify higher price-to-earnings ratios.
However, LYV is expected to significantly trail its peers on the basis of its earnings growth rate.
|LYV 0.76||Peers 4.25||LYV 5.99||Peers 10.23|
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.
LYV is trading at a significant discount to its industry on this measurement.
Lower. A sales growth rate that trails the industry implies that a company is losing market share.
LYV significantly trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
