Valuation


SELL. 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 49.38 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.06 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 9.10. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and 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.
