HOLD. 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. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 0.78 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.81 and a discount versus the industry average of 1.72. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average and above the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, APOLLO INVESTMENT CORP seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
