- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 30.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 32.78% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock despite its gains in the past year.
- GIGOPTIX INC has improved earnings per share by 30.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, GIGOPTIX INC continued to lose money by earning -$0.09 versus -$0.33 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.00 versus -$0.09).
- The gross profit margin for GIGOPTIX INC is rather high; currently it is at 57.74%. Regardless of GIG's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, GIG's net profit margin of -19.41% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
- GIG, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 5.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.3%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
- The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and the overall market, GIGOPTIX INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
