Financial Analysis

SPLUNK INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago.

Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.41 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 2.32% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.

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 9.29 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.81 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 6.93. 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, SPLUNK INC seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
