- Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 2.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 0.0%. 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.
- SYMM 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 this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.05, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- 45.60% is the gross profit margin for SYMMETRICOM INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of SYMM's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, SYMM's net profit margin of -0.40% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
- SYMMETRICOM 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, SYMMETRICOM INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.26 versus $0.03 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 9.6% in earnings ($0.24 versus $0.26).
- 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 Communications Equipment industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 107.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $2.75 million to -$0.20 million.
