3 Stocks Pushing The Electronics Industry Lower
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 27.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$7.12 million to -$9.05 million.
- The gross profit margin for PULSE ELECTRONICS CORP is rather low; currently it is at 23.67%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -11.07% is significantly below that of the industry average.
- PULS's stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 50.23%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last 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.
- PULS, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 8.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 3.7%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
- PULSE ELECTRONICS CORP 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 two years. During the past fiscal year, PULSE ELECTRONICS CORP continued to lose money by earning -$3.39 versus -$6.60 in the prior year.
