Joy Global Inc. Stock Hold Recommendation Reiterated (JOY)
- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.48, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.94 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
- 35.30% is the gross profit margin for JOY GLOBAL INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of JOY's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, JOY's net profit margin of 13.34% compares favorably to the industry average.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Machinery industry average. The net income has decreased by 15.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $213.59 million to $181.56 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $0.41 million or 99.60% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, JOY GLOBAL INC has marginally lower results.
