AMLN Revenue

As a value investing shop, we are interested in seeing how AMLN’s revenues measure up against past performances. One easily understandable way of doing that is to compare Price to Sales per share levels over a given time frame. Assuming it is available, Ockham prefers to look at ten years of history (for this stock there are 8 years of history available) and we weigh recent years more heavily. This allows us to find weighted average historical high and low Price to Sales ratios, which give us a better idea of the stock’s current underlying value. Using this method, we have established a high range for Price to Sales of 25.25x and the low end of the range at 12.41x.

With respect to these historically rational metrics, notice that the current Price to Sales per share ratio for AMLN of 2.08x is well below its normal historic Price to Sales levels. At a price of $12.34, AMLN is 89% below where we would expect to see it. Clearly, this stock looks undervalued compared to historical levels, at least on a Price to Sales basis. This will positively affect our analysis because it is rare to find a stock this far below historical norms, and we would expect some price appreciation to bring this metric back towards a more normal range.

AMLN Cash Earnings

Price to Cash Earnings analysis is inappropriate for this company due to an insufficient positive cash earnings history. Rather than calculating a potentially misleading Price to Cash Earnings analysis, we have chosen to give AMLN a neutral Price to Cash Earnings outlook at this time. However, we should point out that this metric is a significant element in Ockham’s methodology to analyzing the outlook for any company. Therefore, for AMLN, our assessment is now more dependent on the Price to Sales analysis, and investors should be cautious with a company with very limited, if any, positive cash earnings.

AMLN Dividends

When determining a company’s future prospects for success, Ockham Research sees analysis of dividend payments as a key additional factor. Even though it isn’t imperative for AMLN to shell out a dividend in order to receive a positive rating, it can be helpful to further our analysis. As of the time of this report, our data provider does not have historical data for AMLN. Therefore, we are not utilizing the dividends portion in our study. So, we do not know whether AMLN currently pays a dividend at present or not, we have an "expected dividend" payment listed in key fundamentals but cannot varify it.
