Joe's Jeans Inc. Stock Downgraded (JOEZ)
- JOEZ's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.4%. 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.
- JOEZ's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.03 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.14, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- 48.60% is the gross profit margin for JOE'S JEANS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of JOEZ's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, JOEZ's net profit margin of -21.70% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 904.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $0.79 million to -$6.39 million.
- 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 Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry and the overall market, JOE'S JEANS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
