Explanation

This valuation method assumes that the stock valuation will revert to its historical mean in terms of Price/Sales Ratio. The reason we use P/S Ratio instead of P/E Ratio or P/B Ratio is because Price/Sales Ratio is independent of profit margin, and can be applied to a broader range of situations.

It also assumes that over time the profit margin is constant. If a company increases its profit margin to a sustainable level, this value might under-estimate its value. If it has permanent declined profit margins, this may over-estimate the company’s value.

Cascade Corporation's Price to Median P/S Value Ratio for today is calculated as

Price to Median P/S Value=Share Price/Median P/S Value
=0.00/44.34
=0.00
