Hudson Valley Holding Corp Stock Downgraded (HVB)
- HVB's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 2.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.1%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- HUDSON VALLEY HOLDING CORP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, HUDSON VALLEY HOLDING CORP swung to a loss, reporting -$0.12 versus $0.27 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.59 versus -$0.12).
- The share price of HUDSON VALLEY HOLDING CORP has not done very well: it is down 17.44% and has underperformed the S&P 500, in part reflecting the company's sharply declining earnings per share when compared to the year-earlier quarter. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Commercial Banks industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 420.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $7.14 million to -$22.90 million.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Commercial Banks industry and the overall market, HUDSON VALLEY HOLDING CORP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
