Core Molding Technologies Inc. Stock Upgraded (CMT)
- The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Chemicals industry. The net income increased by 4.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $1.74 million to $1.82 million.
- CORE MOLDING TECHNOLOGIES reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past two years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CORE MOLDING TECHNOLOGIES increased its bottom line by earning $0.33 versus $0.16 in the prior year.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, CMT's share price has jumped by 57.88%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, CMT should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.47, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.25, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 19.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 33.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.
