Interactive Brokers Group Inc. Stock Upgraded (IBKR)
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Diversified Financial Services industry average. The net income increased by 29.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $7.98 million to $10.30 million.
- Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 14.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 7.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- The gross profit margin for INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP is rather high; currently it is at 55.63%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, IBKR's net profit margin of 3.46% significantly trails the industry average.
- The stock price has risen over the past year, but, despite its earnings growth and some other positive factors, it has underperformed the S&P 500 so far. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that the other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
- INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP has improved earnings per share by 23.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP reported lower earnings of $0.89 versus $1.37 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 10.7% in earnings ($0.80 versus $0.89).
