. Among the primary strengths of the company is its respectable return on equity which we feel is likely to continue. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Along with the very weak revenue results, HCLP underperformed when compared to the industry average of 37.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 52.7%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. In comparison to the other companies in the Metals & Mining industry and the overall market, HI-CRUSH PARTNERS LP's return on equity significantly exceeds that of the industry average and is above that of the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for HI-CRUSH PARTNERS LP is currently extremely low, coming in at 2.41%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $20.18 million or 23.94% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, HI-CRUSH PARTNERS LP has marginally lower results.
