- ZUMZ's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.4%. 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.
- ZUMZ 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 the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.21, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, ZUMZ's share price has jumped by 67.11%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Setting our sights on the months ahead, however, we feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The implication is that its reduced upside potential is not good enough to warrant further investment at this time.
- Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $8.71 million or 4.03% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow ZUMIEZ INC is still fairing well by exceeding its industry average cash flow growth rate of -26.01%.
- 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 Specialty Retail industry. The net income has decreased by 19.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $2.59 million to $2.09 million.
