Curis Inc. Stock Upgraded (CRIS)
- CRIS's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 3.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 13849.5%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- CRIS has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 9.97, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- CURIS INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CURIS INC reported poor results of -$0.13 versus -$0.06 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.10 versus -$0.13).
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Biotechnology industry and the overall market, CURIS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
