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 29.47 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.99 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 4.74. 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, ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
