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 0.88 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.25 and a discount versus the industry average of 1.86. The current price-to-sales ratio is well below the S&P 500 average and is also below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, AXIS CAPITAL HOLDINGS LTD proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
