Financial Analysis


LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT'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 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. LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.71 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 5.02% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.

Valuation


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. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.61 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.83 and a premium versus the industry average of 3.30. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
