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 3.76 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 1.87. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, FORTUNA SILVER MINES INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
