Financial Analysis

8X8 INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. 8X8 INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 4.83 which clearly shows the ability to cover any 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 remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.81% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.

HOLD. 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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.69 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.99 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 8.71. The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, 8X8 INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
