Financial Analysis

GENOMIC HEALTH INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. GENOMIC HEALTH INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 4.07 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. GHDX managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 20.61% 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 5.82 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.27 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 20.74. 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, GENOMIC HEALTH INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
