Financial Analysis

FORUM ENERGY TECH 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 fell significantly; although net income growth outperformed the average competitor in its industry, revenue growth did not. FORUM ENERGY TECH INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.10 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 17.68% 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.

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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.82 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.84 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 3.84. 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, FORUM ENERGY TECH INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
