Financial Analysis


MODUSLINK GLOBAL SOLUTIONS's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in revenues underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth did not. MODUSLINK GLOBAL SOLUTIONS has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.29 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.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 29.61% 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.

Valuation


SELL. 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 0.68 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.74 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 8.21. 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, MODUSLINK GLOBAL SOLUTIONS proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.

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

 

Neutral. 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.

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

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