SELL. 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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 17.60 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.26 and a significant premium versus the industry average of 12.45. 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.
