3 Stocks Pushing The Diversified Services Industry Lower
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, AMBASSADORS GROUP INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $19.37 million or 3.80% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow AMBASSADORS GROUP INC is still fairing well by exceeding its industry average cash flow growth rate of -22.05%.
- AMBASSADORS GROUP INC's earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, AMBASSADORS GROUP INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.41 versus $0.09 in the prior year.
- In its most recent trading session, EPAX has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. Regardless of the rise in share value over the previous year, we feel that the risks involved in investing in this stock do not compensate for any future upside potential.
- EPAX, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 51.7%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
