- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 6.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 28.5%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- CPI AEROSTRUCTURES INC has improved earnings per share by 32.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, CPI AEROSTRUCTURES INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.03 versus $0.09 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.51 versus $1.03).
- CVU's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.29 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.34 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
- CVU has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 22.98% from its price level of one year ago. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
- Net operating cash flow has decreased to -$6.43 million or 43.36% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
