3 Stocks Pushing The Electronics Industry Lower
- AEHR's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 9.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 64.6%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- AEHR's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.11 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 1.02, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- The gross profit margin for AEHR TEST SYSTEMS is rather high; currently it is at 54.26%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, AEHR's net profit margin of 4.45% significantly trails the industry average.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 125.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 55.74% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, however, we cannot assume that the stock's past performance is going to drive future results. Quite to the contrary, its sharp appreciation over the last year is one of the factors that should prompt investors to seek better opportunities elsewhere.
- The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. When compared to other companies in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and the overall market, AEHR TEST SYSTEMS's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
