TSC Ratings' Updates: Watts Water

PWRD's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 16.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenue leaped by 183.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.

PWRD has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.13, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.

The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the software industry. The net income increased by 244.8% when compared with the same quarter one year prior, rising from $6.95 million to $23.98 million.

The gross profit margin for PWRD is currently very high, coming in at 89.30%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 49.20% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
