Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Over the past 12 months the company generated $-11,471,000 in earnings before interest and taxes from $440 million in revenue. It currently holds $172 million in cash and $232 million in debt.
  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of -32.258296392646145 is lower than its current P/E ratio of -29.34, 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 -9.70. 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 1.85 which means it currently has $1.85 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 18.49.
