Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 4.37 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Along with the unfavorable debt-to-equity ratio, LVNTA maintains a poor quick ratio of 0.75, which illustrates the inability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- The gross profit margin for LIBERTY VENTURES is currently very high, coming in at 82.92%. Regardless of LVNTA's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, LVNTA's net profit margin of -9.96% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 750.00% to $351.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, LIBERTY VENTURES has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 1.86%.
- This stock has increased by 69.95% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Despite the fact that the stock's value has already enjoyed nice gains in the past year, we feel that the risks surrounding an investment in this stock outweigh any potential future returns.
- LIBERTY VENTURES reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.63 versus $0.83).
