TheStreet Ratings rates Entertainment Gaming Asia as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on EGT go as follows:

  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, ENTERTAINMENT GAMING ASIA's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $1.82 million or 17.06% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, ENTERTAINMENT GAMING ASIA has marginally lower results.
  • This stock's share value has moved by only 54.92% over the past year. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
  • ENTERTAINMENT GAMING ASIA has shown improvement in its earnings for its most recently reported quarter when compared with the same quarter a year earlier. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ENTERTAINMENT GAMING ASIA swung to a loss, reporting -$0.15 versus $0.07 in the prior year.
  • The gross profit margin for ENTERTAINMENT GAMING ASIA is rather high; currently it is at 67.48%. Regardless of EGT's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, EGT's net profit margin of -0.44% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.

TheStreet Ratings rates CTI Industries as a sell.

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 22.48% 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.
