3 Stocks Pushing The Consumer Goods Sector Lower
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 4.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 10.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 466.66% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 77.08% 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.
- APPLIANCE RECYCLING CTR AMER reported significant earnings per share improvement 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 year. During the past fiscal year, APPLIANCE RECYCLING CTR AMER turned its bottom line around by earning $0.57 versus -$0.69 in the prior year.
- ARCI's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.92 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 0.70 is weak.
- The gross profit margin for APPLIANCE RECYCLING CTR AMER is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 28.20%. Regardless of ARCI's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 2.89% trails the industry average.
