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 4.13 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.02 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 8.60. 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, BROADSOFT INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
