Financial Analysis


MASTEC INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in net income underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the revenue growth did not. MASTEC INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.22 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.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 17.84% 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


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 1.89 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.76 and a discount versus the industry average of 2.02. The current price-to-sales ratio is well below the S&P 500 average and is also below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, MASTEC 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.

MTZ'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.

MTZ is trading at a significant discount to its peers.

Average. An average price-to-projected earnings ratio can signify an industry neutral stock price and average future growth expectations.

MTZ 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.

Average. 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.

MTZ is trading at a valuation on par with its peers.

 

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

However, MTZ 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.

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

 

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

MTZ significantly trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
