Trade-Ideas LLC identified

Energy Focus



) as a weak on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Energy Focus as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • EFOI has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $29.8 million.
  • EFOI has traded 193,110 shares today.
  • EFOI is trading at 3.20 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • EFOI is trading at a new low 3.07% below yesterday's close.

'Weak on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as material stock news, analyst downgrades, insider selling, selling from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and traders are piling out of 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 (or avoid losses by trimming weak positions). 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.

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Energy Focus as a


. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • EFOI's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 14.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 148.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • EFOI's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.03 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, EFOI has a quick ratio of 1.51, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • ENERGY FOCUS INC reported significant earnings per share improvement 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, ENERGY FOCUS INC continued to lose money by earning -$1.03 versus -$1.50 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.64 versus -$1.03).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Electrical Equipment industry. The net income increased by 439.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$0.62 million to $2.11 million.
  • 46.24% is the gross profit margin for ENERGY FOCUS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 12.70% is above that of the industry average.
