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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 0.66 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.78 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 14.73. 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, CAMECO CORP proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
