Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Over the past 12 months the company generated $-150,332,000 in earnings before interest and taxes from $601 million in revenue. It currently holds $1 billion in cash and $564 million in debt.
  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 3.4810735718851435 is higher than its current P/E ratio of -58.72, 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 0.79. 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 4.06 which means it currently has $4.06 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 75.04. This means that the stock is trading at a premium of 75 times relative to the company's book value which reflects the total value of a company's assets that shareholders of that company would receive if the company were to be liquidated.
