SELL. This stock’s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 0.86 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.11 and a discount versus the industry average of 1.03. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CYS INVESTMENTS INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
