3 Stocks Pushing The Consumer Goods Sector Lower
- COBR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 9.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Household Durables industry. The net income increased by 104.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$1.94 million to $0.09 million.
- COBRA ELECTRONICS CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, COBRA ELECTRONICS CORP swung to a loss, reporting -$0.17 versus $0.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.25 versus -$0.17).
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 103.44% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 55.21% 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 gross profit margin for COBRA ELECTRONICS CORP is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 28.28%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 0.30% trails that of the industry average.
