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. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 2.04 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.73 and a premium versus the industry average of 1.77. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, ROYAL GOLD INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
