Financial Analysis

CAMECO CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. CAMECO CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.39 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 3.34% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near 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. 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.
