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. Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount.
