Detailed Analysis

Guru Score: 0%


SECTOR: [PASS]

ASBB is neither a technology nor financial Company, and therefore this methodology is applicable.


SALES: [FAIL]

The investor must select companies of "adequate size". This includes companies with annual sales greater than $340 million. ASBB's sales of $23.0 million, based on trailing 12 month sales, fail this test.


CURRENT RATIO: [FAIL]

The current ratio must be greater than or equal to 2. Companies that meet this criterion are typically financially secure and defensive. Unfortunately, ASBB's current ratio is not available. Therefore, this variable cannot be evaluated at the present time.


LONG-TERM DEBT IN RELATION TO NET CURRENT ASSETS: [FAIL]

For industrial companies, long-term debt must not exceed net current assets (current assets minus current liabilities). Companies that meet this criterion display one of the attributes of a financially secure organization. The current assets for ASBB are not available. Hence, this criterion cannot be evaluated at the present time.


LONG-TERM EPS GROWTH: [FAIL]

Companies must increase their EPS by at least 30% over a ten-year period and EPS must not have been negative for any year within the last 5 years. EPS for ASBB were negative within the last 5 years and therefore the company fails this criterion.


P/E RATIO: [FAIL]

The Price/Earnings (P/E) ratio, based on the greater of the current PE or the PE using average earnings over the last 3 fiscal years, must be "moderate", which this methodology states is not greater than 15. Stocks with moderate P/Es are more defensive by nature. ASBB's P/E of 38.68 (using the current PE) fails this test.


PRICE/BOOK RATIO: [FAIL]

The Price/Book ratio must also be reasonable. That is, the Price/Book multiplied by P/E cannot be greater than 22. ASBB's Price/Book ratio is 0.93, while the P/E is 0. ASBB fails the Price/Book test.
