Valuation


HOLD. This stock?s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but below the industry average.

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