Apricus Biosciences IncFind Ratings Reports
APRICUS BIOSCIENCES INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly 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. APRICUS BIOSCIENCES INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.48 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.72% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.

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. Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average.
