- BEAM's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.8%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- The gross profit margin for BEAM INC is rather high; currently it is at 62.91%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, BEAM's net profit margin of 11.65% significantly trails the industry average.
- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.53, 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 0.77 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
- BEAM INC's earnings per share declined by 27.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, BEAM INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.51 versus $0.84 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.63 versus $2.51).
- 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. When compared to other companies in the Beverages industry and the overall market, BEAM INC's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
