Rocky Mountain Chocolate Stock Upgraded (RMCF)
- RMCF's revenue growth trails the industry average of 20.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.6%. 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.
- RMCF has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. To add to this, RMCF has a quick ratio of 1.70, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $3.47 million or 24.72% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 24.72%, ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOC FACT INC is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 512.68%.
- ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOC FACT INC has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past two years. However, we anticipate this trend to reverse over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOC FACT INC reported lower earnings of $0.24 versus $0.62 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.72 versus $0.24).
- Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, regardless of the company's weak earnings results. The stock's price rise over the last year has driven it to a level which is somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
