- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Food Products industry. The net income increased by 55.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $1.83 million to $2.85 million.
- OME's revenue growth trails the industry average of 35.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 19.1%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- OME's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.15 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, OME has a quick ratio of 1.90, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 237.47% to $13.59 million when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 219.03%.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 55.55% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 62.32% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
