IRobot Corporation Stock Upgraded (IRBT)
- The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 21.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- IRBT 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 3.07, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- 46.90% is the gross profit margin for IROBOT CORP which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 7.86% is above that of the industry average.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Household Durables industry. The net income increased by 1179.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $0.65 million to $8.36 million.
- IROBOT CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. 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, IROBOT CORP reported lower earnings of $0.61 versus $1.44 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.83 versus $0.61).
