Financial Analysis

CARDTRONICS PLC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased, representing a decrease to the bottom line. CARDTRONICS PLC has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.54 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 14.57% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the 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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 2.89 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.24 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 11.36. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CARDTRONICS PLC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
