3 Industrial Goods Stocks Pushing The Sector Higher
- GUANWEI RECYCLING CORP has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, GUANWEI RECYCLING CORP reported lower earnings of $0.93 versus $1.13 in the prior year.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Commercial Services & Supplies industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 68.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $2.37 million to $0.76 million.
- 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. When compared to other companies in the Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, GUANWEI RECYCLING CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- The gross profit margin for GUANWEI RECYCLING CORP is rather low; currently it is at 16.86%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 6.41% trails that of the industry average.
- In its most recent trading session, GPRC 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. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
