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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 10.75 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 7.52. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average and above the industry average, indicating a premium. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, AUTODESK INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
