3 Stocks Driving The Retail Industry Higher
- KIRK's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 1.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- KIRK has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. To add to this, KIRK has a quick ratio of 1.91, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- KIRKLAND'S INC has improved earnings per share by 20.0% 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. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, KIRKLAND'S INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.82 versus $0.79 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.99 versus $0.82).
- 39.35% is the gross profit margin for KIRKLAND'S INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 1.89% trails the industry average.
