  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of -15.101456414829256 is lower than its current P/E ratio of -7.46, implying that analysts are expecting an increase in earnings.
  • The company's price/earnings-to-growth ratio (PEG Ratio), a widely used indicator of a stock's true value while also factoring in expected earnings growth, currently stands at 0.63.
