Financial Analysis

MEI PHARMA INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though it increased sales and net income significantly, the company was unable to grow at a faster pace than its industry competitors. MEI PHARMA INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 16.61 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. MEIP 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 6.29% 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 1.32 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.06 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 10.06. 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, MEI PHARMA INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
