Valuation


BUY. The current P/E ratio indicates a significant discount compared to an average of 29.91 for the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry and a value on par with the S&P 500 average of 18.29. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.34 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.52 and a discount versus the industry average of 5.55. The price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, VERA BRADLEY INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
