- The gross profit margin for HEALTH MANAGEMENT ASSOC is currently extremely low, coming in at 15.00%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the weak results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 3.90% is above that of the industry average.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 5.02 and currently higher than the industry average, implying that there is very poor management of debt levels within the company. Regardless of the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, HMA has managed to keep a strong quick ratio of 1.85, which demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the Health Care Providers & Services industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income increased by 18.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $46.94 million to $55.52 million.
- The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year, there is currently no conclusive evidence that warrants the purchase or sale of this stock.
- HMA's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 4.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.7%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
