3 Stocks Pushing The Consumer Goods Sector Lower
- UNF's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 4.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- UNF's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.01 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, UNF has a quick ratio of 1.97, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- UNIFIRST CORP has improved earnings per share by 7.0% 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. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, UNIFIRST CORP increased its bottom line by earning $5.82 versus $4.76 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.83 versus $5.82).
- 38.61% is the gross profit margin for UNIFIRST CORP which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, UNF's net profit margin of 8.78% significantly trails the industry average.
