Financial Analysis


MATTSON TECHNOLOGY INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income fell significantly, underperforming compared to the average company in its industry. MATTSON TECHNOLOGY INC has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.72 which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 16.52% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.

MTSN is trading at a significant premium to its peers.

Discount. A lower price-to-book ratio makes a stock more attractive to investors seeking stocks with lower market values per dollar of equity on the balance sheet.

MTSN is trading at a discount to its peers.

 

Lower. Elevated earnings growth rates can lead to capital appreciation and justify higher price-to-earnings ratios.

However, MTSN is expected to significantly trail its peers on the basis of its earnings growth rate.
