- Although NUTR's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.25 is very low, it is currently higher than that of the industry average. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.01, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- The gross profit margin for NUTRACEUTICAL INTL CORP is rather high; currently it is at 53.38%. 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 7.88% is in-line with the industry average.
- NUTRACEUTICAL INTL CORP's earnings per share declined by 22.8% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, NUTRACEUTICAL INTL CORP increased its bottom line by earning $1.74 versus $1.59 in the prior year. This year, the market expects earnings to be in line with last year ($1.74 versus $1.74).
- NUTR, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 1.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 3.0%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
