3 Stocks Boosting The Consumer Goods Sector Higher
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry average. The net income has decreased by 10.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from -$4.21 million to -$4.64 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$4.91 million or 67.87% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
- Looking at the price performance of STRI's shares over the past 12 months, there is not much good news to report: the stock is down 53.10%, and it has underformed the S&P 500 Index. In addition, the company's earnings per share are lower today than the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
- 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. Compared to other companies in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and the overall market, STR HOLDINGS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- STRI, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 9.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 16.8%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
