- KNM'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, KNM has a quick ratio of 1.63, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- KNM, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 1.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 20.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- In its most recent trading session, KNM has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
- The gross profit margin for KONAMI CORP is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 34.60%. Regardless of KNM's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, KNM's net profit margin of 6.90% is significantly lower than the industry average.
