- MKSI 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 5.50, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry. The net income increased by 392.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $4.11 million to $20.24 million.
- 42.60% is the gross profit margin for MKS INSTRUMENTS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, MKSI's net profit margin of 9.90% significantly trails the industry average.
- MKS INSTRUMENTS INC reported significant earnings per share improvement 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, MKS INSTRUMENTS INC reported lower earnings of $0.68 versus $0.91 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.51 versus $0.68).
