Global Cash Access Holdings Inc Stock Upgraded (GCA)
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 2.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.84, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 309.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $1.74 million to $7.13 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 996.56% to $18.28 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, GLOBAL CASH ACCESS HOLDINGS has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 11.43%.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 266.66% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 131.34% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. We feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The other strengths this company shows, however, justify the higher price levels.
