- The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 4.46 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, TLLP's share price has jumped by 57.98%, 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.
- The gross profit margin for TESORO LOGISTICS LP is rather high; currently it is at 60.40%. Regardless of TLLP's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, TLLP's net profit margin of 35.40% significantly outperformed against the industry.
- TESORO LOGISTICS LP reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TESORO LOGISTICS LP turned its bottom line around by earning $1.12 versus -$0.11 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.80 versus $1.12).
