TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Uni-pixel as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been generally deteriorating net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 130.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$2.04 million to -$4.70 million.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry and the overall market, UNI-PIXEL INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • UNXL, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 0.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 98.6%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • UNI-PIXEL INC's earnings per share declined by 37.9% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, UNI-PIXEL INC continued to lose money by earning -$1.13 versus -$1.19 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.21 versus -$1.13).
  • The gross profit margin for UNI-PIXEL INC is currently very high, coming in at 100.00%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -469500.00% is in-line with the industry average.
