New York Times Company Stock Upgraded (NYT)
- The gross profit margin for NEW YORK TIMES CO is rather high; currently it is at 62.94%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 14.78% is above that of the industry average.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, NYT's share price has jumped by 73.54%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
