- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, UNTD's share price has jumped by 72.77%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock despite its gains in the past year.
- The revenue growth significantly trails the industry average of 203.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.1%. 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.
- 45.70% is the gross profit margin for UNITED ONLINE INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of UNTD's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 4.09% trails the industry average.
- Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. Compared to other companies in the Internet Software & Services industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, UNITED ONLINE INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has decreased to $15.15 million or 10.24% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
