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 2.08 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.10 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 16.15. The price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, PERRIGO CO PLC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
