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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.25 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.09 and a premium versus the industry average of 3.44. The price-to-sales ratio is below the S&P 500 average and is well below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CALAMP CORP proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
