Financial Analysis

GENMARK DIAGNOSTICS INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. GENMARK DIAGNOSTICS INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.70 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 54.86% 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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 17.81 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 5.05. 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, GENMARK DIAGNOSTICS INC proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
