3 Stocks Pushing The Industrial Goods Sector Lower
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 93.23% to -$27.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 44.19%.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, TXT's share price has jumped by 48.98%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
- TEXTRON INC's earnings per share declined by 22.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TEXTRON INC reported lower earnings of $1.75 versus $1.97 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.05 versus $1.75).
- TXT, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 3.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 0.3%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- The gross profit margin for TEXTRON INC is rather low; currently it is at 20.65%. Regardless of TXT'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 2.98% trails the industry average.
