Trade-Ideas LLC identified

EFuture Information Technology

(

EFUT

) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified EFuture Information Technology as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • EFUT has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $12.6 million.
  • EFUT has traded 139,674 shares today.
  • EFUT is trading at 23.74 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • EFUT is trading at a new high 9.05% above yesterday's close.

'Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates EFuture Information Technology as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 15.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.7%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, EFUT's share price has jumped by 136.96%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, EFUT should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • 42.71% is the gross profit margin for E-FUTURE INFORMATION TECH which we consider to be strong. 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 -18.35% is in-line with the industry average.
  • EFUT's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.09 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.71 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • E-FUTURE INFORMATION TECH's earnings per share declined by 11.1% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, E-FUTURE INFORMATION TECH turned its bottom line around by earning $0.27 versus -$0.29 in the prior year.
