Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Over the past 12 months the company generated $-154,922,000 in earnings before interest and taxes from $729 million in revenue. It currently holds $1 billion in cash and $583 million in debt.
  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of -36.32282459972536 is lower than its current P/E ratio of -13.31, 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 0.06. A fairly valued company should have a PEG ratio of 1.0. When a company's PEG exceeds 1.0, it's considered overvalued while a stock with a PEG of less than 1.0 is considered undervalued.
