Financial Analysis

MATTRESS FIRM HOLDING CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased, representing a decrease to the bottom line. MATTRESS FIRM HOLDING CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.16 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 2.79% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop 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 5.20 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.83 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 13.18. 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, MATTRESS FIRM HOLDING CORP proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
