- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Communications Equipment industry. The net income increased by 138.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $0.19 million to $0.45 million.
- KVHI's revenue growth trails the industry average of 16.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.7%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- Although KVHI's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.11 is very low, it is currently higher than that of the industry average. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.94, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 514.85% to $1.70 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, KVH INDUSTRIES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -8.73%.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 200.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 64.57% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
