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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.41 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a discount versus the industry average of 2.65. The current price-to-sales ratio is 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.
