Financial Analysis

YAHOO INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased, representing a decrease to the bottom line. YAHOO INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 5.78 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. YHOO managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 15.41% 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.

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. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.30 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.81 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 5.44. The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, YAHOO INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
