- DJCO 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 3.63, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- The gross profit margin for DAILY JOURNAL CORP is rather high; currently it is at 52.90%. Regardless of DJCO's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DJCO's net profit margin of 2.55% is significantly lower than the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $2.28 million or 9.19% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Media industry and the overall market, DAILY JOURNAL CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
