Financial Analysis

Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.20 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 68.85% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop 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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.61 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.72 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 15.75. 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, SAMSON OIL & GAS LTD proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
