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 26.30 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 4.42 and a significant premium versus the subsector average of 18.72. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the subsector average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, POTBELLY CORP proves to trade at a premium to investment alternatives.
