Financial Analysis

DRAGONWAVE INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. DRAGONWAVE INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.48 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.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 101.98% 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. 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.
