Financial Analysis


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, however, it was unable to keep up with the growth of the average competitor within its industry. CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.49 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 269.79% 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.

Valuation


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.

CZR's P/E is negative making this valuation measure meaningless.

 

Discount. The P/CF ratio, a stock’s price divided by the company's cash flow from operations, is useful for comparing companies with different capital requirements or financing structures.

CZR is trading at a significant discount to its peers.

CZR is trading at a significant premium to its peers.

 

Neutral. The PEG ratio is the stock’s P/E divided by the consensus estimate of long-term earnings growth. Faster growth can justify higher price multiples.

CZR NM Peers 9.92   CZR -88.81 Peers 52.48

Neutral. A lower price-to-book ratio makes a stock more attractive to investors seeking stocks with lower market values per dollar of equity on the balance sheet.

CZR's P/B is negative making this valuation measure meaningless.

 

Lower. Elevated earnings growth rates can lead to capital appreciation and justify higher price-to-earnings ratios.

However, CZR is expected to significantly trail its peers on the basis of its earnings growth rate.

CZR significantly trails its peers on the basis of sales growth
