- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$49.41 million or 516.79% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
- The gross profit margin for CAL DIVE INTERNATIONAL INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 13.44%. Regardless of DVR's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DVR's net profit margin of -1.37% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
- The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Energy Equipment & Services industry and the overall market, CAL DIVE INTERNATIONAL INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- DVR's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.68 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 1.26 is sturdy.
- Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, and has traded in line with the S&P 500. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
