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 1.12 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 11.06. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, VENAXIS INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
