3 Stocks Pushing The Materials & Construction Industry Lower
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 17.3%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- TRR's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.05 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.39, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. Compared to other companies in the Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, TRC COS INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- TRC COS INC's earnings per share declined by 28.6% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TRC COS INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.22 versus $1.18 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 64.8% in earnings ($0.43 versus $1.22).
