- The gross profit margin for REPUBLIC BANCORP INC/KY is currently very high, coming in at 91.60%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 24.02% trails the industry average.
- Compared to where it was 12 months ago, the stock is up, but it has so far lagged the appreciation in the S&P 500. Despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year, there is currently no conclusive evidence that warrants the purchase or sale of this stock.
- RBCAA, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 9.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 64.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
