Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Over the past 12 months the company generated $656 million in earnings before interest and taxes from $4 billion in revenue. It currently holds $224 million in cash and $1 billion in debt.
  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 0 is higher than its current P/E ratio of -6.27, 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 0.01. 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.
  • The company's debt-to-equity ratio, which measures the extent to which it finances its operations through debt, currently stands at 3.69 which means it currently has $3.69 of debt for every $1 of equity.

Some industries are known for having much higher debt to equity ratios than others.
  • The company's price-to-book ratio, which measures the market's valuation of a company relative to its book value, currently stands at 3.34.

  • The company's enterprise value-to-revenue multiple, which is often used to determine a company's valuation in the case of a potential acquisition, currently stands at 1.54.
