Global Sources Ltd. Stock Downgraded (GSOL)
- GLOBAL SOURCES LTD reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, GLOBAL SOURCES LTD increased its bottom line by earning $0.65 versus $0.36 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.84 versus $0.65).
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and greatly outperformed compared to the Media industry average. The net income increased by 39.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $7.25 million to $10.09 million.
- The gross profit margin for GLOBAL SOURCES LTD is rather high; currently it is at 67.60%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 15.20% is above that of the industry average.
- GSOL has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 20.33% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
