- TSRX has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 4.75, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.

For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 49.5% in earnings (-$1.51 versus -$1.01).
