Alkermes PLCFind Ratings Reports
ALKERMES PLC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. ALKERMES PLC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 3.25 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. ALKS managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 7.97% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.

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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 7.40 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.93 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 11.85. The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, ALKERMES PLC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
