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. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.48 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.82 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 5.88. 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.
