Craft Brew Alliance Inc Stock Downgraded (BREW)
- Compared to its price level of one year ago, BREW is up 0.26% to its most recent closing price of 7.69. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals should not have much impact in either direction, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
- BREW's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.12 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.42 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
- BREW, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 2.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 4.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- The gross profit margin for CRAFT BREW ALLIANCE INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 29.80%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -4.84% is significantly below that of the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$1.32 million or 128.58% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
