3 Hold-Rated Dividend Stocks: STON, DSWL, PDH

Deswell Industries

Dividend Yield: 8.00%

Deswell Industries (NASDAQ:DSWL) shares currently have a dividend yield of 8.00%.

Deswell Industries, Inc. engages in the manufacture and sale of injection-molded plastic parts and components, electronic products and subassemblies, and metallic molds and accessory parts for original equipment manufacturers and contract manufacturers.

The average volume for Deswell Industries has been 12,900 shares per day over the past 30 days. Deswell Industries has a market cap of $40.6 million and is part of the consumer non-durables industry. Shares are up 4.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Deswell Industries as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • DSWL 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. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 5.18, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $2.21 million or 8.03% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, DESWELL INDUSTRIES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -364.21%.
  • DSWL, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 1.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 22.0%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Chemicals industry and the overall market, DESWELL INDUSTRIES INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for DESWELL INDUSTRIES INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 13.91%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -21.00% is significantly below that of the industry average.
