Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.95 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.84 and a premium versus the industry average of 3.84. 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, U S SILICA HOLDINGS INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
