Valuation


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 0.98 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.78 and a discount versus the industry average of 1.76. 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, SCHNITZER STEEL INDS proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
