    Scathing analysis on MAS

    From Motley Fool " Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS) reported a 11% jump in quarterly operating net income with $52 million in gross profit improvements. But its European sales were down by 11% and its revenues were flat. The management announced that lost sales accounted to $15 million and would account to $50 million in each of the next 4 quarters. Besides promises of operating expenditure cuts, there aren’t any positive triggers for the company. Its debt/equity equates to a towering 777%, and its shares trade at a P/E of 28.7x. Its Returns on Equity equate to a negative 56% and its shares carry a ridiculously high P/FCF of 2878x. The absence of positive catalysts, coupled with poor financials and fundamentals, should discourage investors from entering Masco".
