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. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.92 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.49 and a premium versus the industry average of 1.69. The price-to-sales ratio is similar to the S&P 500 average, but it is significantly below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, STILLWATER MINING CO proves to trade at a premium 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.

SWC'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.

SWC is trading at a significant discount to its peers.

Premium. A higher price-to-projected earnings ratio than its peers can signify a more expensive stock or higher future growth expectations.

SWC is trading at a 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.

Premium. A higher price-to-book ratio makes a stock less attractive to investors seeking stocks with lower market values per dollar of equity on the balance sheet.

SWC is trading at a premium to its peers.

 

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

However, SWC 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.

SWC 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.

SWC significantly trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
