The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, GREAT PANTHER SILVER LTD reported lower earnings of $0.03 versus $0.08 in the prior year.

The net income has significantly decreased by 1547.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $0.35 million to -$5.12 million.
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Metals & Mining industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, GREAT PANTHER SILVER LTD underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
- This stock's share value has moved by only 62.18% over the past year. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
- GPL, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 2.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 22.7%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
