Financial Analysis

BAKER HUGHES INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. BAKER HUGHES INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.96 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 22.34% 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. This stock’s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.99 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.99 and a discount versus the industry average of 2.95. 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, BAKER HUGHES INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
