- 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 Biotechnology industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 109.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $31.38 million to -$3.08 million.
- 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, NEUROCRINE BIOSCIENCES INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$8.30 million or 399.53% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
- NEUROCRINE BIOSCIENCES INC 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. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, NEUROCRINE BIOSCIENCES INC turned its bottom line around by earning $0.67 versus -$0.18 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 122.4% in earnings (-$0.15 versus $0.67).
- In its most recent trading session, NBIX has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
