Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC Stock Upgraded (HCCI)
- The gross profit margin for HERITAGE-CRYSTAL CLEAN INC is currently very high, coming in at 75.50%. Regardless of HCCI's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 2.60% trails the industry average.
- Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that the other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Commercial Services & Supplies industry. The net income increased by 81.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $0.52 million to $0.95 million.
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 0.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- Despite the fact that HCCI's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 2.46 is high and demonstrates strong liquidity.
