Is Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. Growing?

Over the last three years Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. has shrunk its earnings per share by an average of 3.6% per year (measured with a line of best fit). Its revenue is up 4.0% over last year.

Unfortunately, earnings per share have trended lower over the last three years. The fairly low revenue growth fails to impress given that the earnings per share is down. These factors suggest that the business performance wouldn’t really justify a high pay packet for the CEO. Although we don’t have analyst forecasts, shareholders might want to examine this detailed historical graph of earnings, revenue and cash flow.

Has Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. Been A Good Investment?

With a total shareholder return of 26% over three years, Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. shareholders would, in general, be reasonably content. But they would probably prefer not to see CEO compensation far in excess of the median.

We compared total CEO remuneration at Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. with the amount paid at companies with a similar market capitalization. As discussed above, we discovered that the company pays more than the median of that group.

Earnings per share have not grown in three years, and the revenue growth fails to impress us.
