Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Over the past 12 months the company generated $263 million in earnings before interest and taxes from $3 billion in revenue. It currently holds $261 million in cash and $1 billion in debt.
  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 4.9139487520441385 is higher than its current P/E ratio of -10.74, implying that analysts are expecting a decrease 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 0.64. 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.
