- CSU's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 15.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 17.0%. 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.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, CSU's share price has jumped by 168.25%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Although CSU had significant growth over the past year, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock at the current time.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.41 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. To add to this, CSU has a quick ratio of 0.62, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Health Care Providers & Services industry and the overall market, CAPITAL SENIOR LIVING CORP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
