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.

The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the subsector average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CHIMERIX INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives.
