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 5.36 indicates a significant premium versus the S&P 500 average of 2.94 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 32.24. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. The valuation analysis reveals that, CIMAREX ENERGY CO seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
