Financial Analysis

MASTEC INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. MASTEC INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.27 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 5.59% from the same quarter last year. Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties in the near future.

HOLD. This stock’s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 2.49 indicates valuation on par with the S&P 500 average of 2.73 and a premium versus the industry average of 1.96. The current price-to-sales ratio is well below the S&P 500 average, but above the industry average. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, MASTEC INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.

Discount. The P/CF ratio, a stock’s price divided by the company's cash flow from operations, is useful for comparing companies with different capital requirements or financing structures.

MTZ is trading at a discount to its peers.
