Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CTIB go as follows:

  • The share price of CTI INDUSTRIES CORP has not done very well: it is down 11.16% and has underperformed the S&P 500, in part reflecting the company's sharply declining earnings per share when compared to the year-earlier quarter. Looking ahead, other than the push or pull of the broad market, we do not see anything in the company's numbers that may help reverse the decline experienced over the past 12 months. Despite the past decline, the stock is still selling for more than most others in its industry.
  • 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 Household Durables industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 116.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.06 million to -$0.12 million.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio of 1.47 is relatively high when compared with the industry average, suggesting a need for better debt level management. To add to this, CTIB has a quick ratio of 0.55, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$2.01 million or 231.14% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • The gross profit margin for CTI INDUSTRIES CORP is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 27.02%. Regardless of CTIB's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -0.91% trails the industry average.
