TheStreet Ratings rates Compx International as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CIX go as follows:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.2%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • CIX 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 5.13, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • COMPX INTERNATIONAL INC has improved earnings per share by 11.8% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, COMPX INTERNATIONAL INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.70 versus $0.49 in the prior year.
  • The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly outperformed against the S&P 500 and exceeded that of the Commercial Services & Supplies industry average. The net income increased by 12.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $2.14 million to $2.41 million.

Globus Maritime ( GLBS) was another company that pushed the Services sector lower today. Globus Maritime was down $0.12 (8.2%) to $1.35 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 15,104 shares of Globus Maritime exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 4,800 shares. The stock ranged in price between $1.34-$1.39 after having opened the day at $1.36 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $1.47.

Globus Maritime Limited, an integrated dry bulk shipping company, provides marine transportation services worldwide. It owns, operates, and manages a fleet of dry bulk vessels that transport iron ore, coal, grain, steel products, cement, alumina, and other dry bulk cargoes. Globus Maritime has a market cap of $13.8 million and is part of the diversified services industry. Shares are down 43.8% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Globus Maritime as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on GLBS go as follows:

  • GLOBUS MARITIME LTD has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, GLOBUS MARITIME LTD reported lower earnings of $0.29 versus $0.52 in the prior year.
  • 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 Marine industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 405.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $1.08 million to -$3.30 million.
  • 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 Marine industry and the overall market, GLOBUS MARITIME LTD's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $0.32 million or 88.78% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 56.07%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 409.09% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
