HOLD. 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 1.97 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 3.03 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 5.01. 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, TREEHOUSE FOODS INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
