3 Stocks Improving Performance Of The Consumer Durables Industry
- BTN 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. To add to this, BTN has a quick ratio of 2.18, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- The revenue fell significantly faster than the industry average of 14.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 16.2%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- The share price of BALLANTYNE STRONG INC has not done very well: it is down 15.90% and has underperformed the S&P 500, in part reflecting the company's sharply declining earnings per share when compared to the year-earlier quarter. Looking ahead, other than the push or pull of the broad market, we do not see anything in the company's numbers that may help reverse the decline experienced over the past 12 months. Despite the past decline, the stock is still selling for more than most others in its industry.
- The gross profit margin for BALLANTYNE STRONG INC is rather low; currently it is at 15.01%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -5.26% is significantly below that of the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $2.73 million or 63.25% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
