slow stochastic indicates a oversold condition, has not broken downtrend line. DB issues one of 5 transports to buy now. Street analysis:
Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows:
Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. Looking ahead, unless broad bear market conditions prevail, we still see more upside potential for this stock, despite the fact that it has already risen over the past year.
WERNER ENTERPRISES INC has improved earnings per share by 25.7% 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 year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, WERNER ENTERPRISES INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.36 versus $1.18 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.65 versus $1.36).
The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Road & Rail industry. The net income increased by 24.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $25.63 million to $31.85 million.
WERN's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.09 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, WERN has a quick ratio of 1.50, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 131.63% to $72.59 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, WERNER ENTERPRISES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 7.79%.
Perhaps this is capitulation, perhaps I am getting out at the bottom, but the below forced me to liquidate half my position:
1 The unprecedented price action in mlp's
2 The ETE WMB unmitigated disaster
3 The concern of a Lehman moment in commodities (glencore, PBR)
4 The dramatic rise inthe expense ratio
5 Potential Liquidity crunch in ETF's
6. Odd price action in amlp over the past 2 monrthas
Critics chime in
