Increase in profitability and industry-beating performance can be essential considerations in a stock for some investors. In this article, I will take a look at MIND CTI Ltd’s (NASDAQ:MNDO) track record on a high level, to give you some insight into how the company has been performing against its historical trend and its industry peers.
How Did MNDO’s Recent Performance Stack Up Against Its Past?
MNDO’s trailing twelve-month earnings (from 30 June 2018) of US$5m has increased by 7.2% compared to the previous year.
However, this one-year growth rate has been lower than its average earnings growth rate over the past 5 years of 9.2%, indicating the rate at which MNDO is growing has slowed down. Why could this be happening? Well, let’s examine what’s transpiring with margins and whether the rest of the industry is feeling the heat.
In terms of returns from investment, MIND C.T.I has invested its equity funds well leading to a 28% return on equity (ROE), above the sensible minimum of 20%. Furthermore, its return on assets (ROA) of 23% exceeds the US Software industry of 5.7%, indicating MIND C.T.I has used its assets more efficiently. However, its return on capital (ROC), which also accounts for MIND C.T.I’s debt level, has declined over the past 3 years from 34% to 27%.
What does this mean?
MIND C.T.I’s track record can be a valuable insight into its earnings performance, but it certainly doesn’t tell the whole story. While MIND C.T.I has a good historical track record with positive growth and profitability, there’s no certainty that this will extrapolate into the future.
