Helix Technology Corporation (HELX) Report Analysis

Fundamental Summary

Helix published its Q2 report on 2005-07-21 with positive results, but no significant factors particularly remarkable relative to its peers. We do believe, though, that macro-related market conditions will influence its performance more significantly than its individual results. Therefore, they earned a total score of 68 out of 100 and a HOLD recommendation.

Sector Overview

Helix is included in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment according to GICS (global industry classification standard). The Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry is part of the Information Technology sector. It includes manufacturers of semiconductors, semiconductor equipment, and related products. Helix's industry and sector affiliation are expected to negatively affect their likelihood to overperform the market in the upcoming period, as other sectors appear more likely to benefit from the macroeconomic environment we see now.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. Helix's stock is now priced above its 5-day, but below its 50-day and 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is weakening. Historically, this is a positive setup in the near-term. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), Helix's stock indicates that it's likely oversold. Overall, these technical indicators signal negative momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 57.

Specifically, they reported that cash and cash equivalents were 12.0, representing 16.9% change from the last report. This performance is significantly more impressive than its peers and competitors. It suggests that their stock price has room to grow to reflect its actual intrinsic value. Consequently, their cash and cash equivalents movement received a grade of 85. Also, Helix produced great equity metrics for this filing, demonstrating management's skill in increasing shareholder value. Helix's equity was reported as 141.3, which represents a -0.8% change from the last report. Companies in the same sector and market capitalization will usually be affected by up to 16.8 percent by this parameter. This performance is significantly more impressive than its peers and competitors. Consequently, their equity movement received a grade of 79. That said, one metric, Book Value Factors, stood out as particularly concerning. Helix's price to book ratio (P/B) was reported as 2.6 and represents -8.2% change from the previous report. This characteristic can affect companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 28.7%. The company's book value factors were lackluster and showed that management hasn't figured out how to overperform expectations. Therefore, their book value factors earned a score of 52. Consequently, its balance sheet earned a rank of 65.

Income Statement Analysis

Two metrics jump up as the most significant positive drivers of the income statement's strength in Helix's recent report: Revenue Efficiency and Return Factors. Helix did an excellent job managing its revenue efficiency this past period. Helix's revenue efficiency is 156.1 according to the metrics in the current filing, which represents a -1.3% change from the previous report. This characteristic can affect companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 18.6%. Their revenue efficiency, specifically in contrast to their industry peers', should support a positive movement in the company's stock price. As a result, its revenue efficiency earned a score of 89. Also, In this filing, Helix reported a return on equity (ROE) ratio of 15.4, which represents a change of -16.6%. The company appears headed in the right direction in terms of these return factors, exhibiting prudent capital expenditure growth compared to its peers. Therefore, its return factors component earned a score of 51. On the other hand, EBITDA, jumped out as looking problematic. Helix's EBIDTA now sits at 18.2 and represents -9.7% change from the last reporting period. This parameter coud affect companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 15.8%. Their EBITDA metrics are even more problematic when compared to their peers. Discouraging results like these statistically lead to negative pressure in stock prices, so we rated their EBITDA a grade of 47. Its income statement, therefore, earned a score of 74.

Cash Flow Analysis

Overall, Helix's critical cash flow metrics appear to signal strong support and a high likelihood of positive growth going forward. Helix's strong net cash flow numbers, which were 3.4 in this filing, showed a -15.6% change from the last period. Their net cash flow metrics are especially remarkable relative to their peers. The company's net cash flow, therefore, received a grade of 75. Also, Helix's management did a great job this period managing its capital expenditure (CapEx). In terms of the raw numbers, CapEx was reported as -3.3, which represents a -5.2% change from the last period. The company appears to be headed in the right direction regarding resource allocation, exhibiting prudent capital expenditure growth compared to its peers. Consequently, their CapEx movement received a grade of 63. That said, one metric, Asset Turnover, stood out as strongly negative. Helix's asset turnover metrics were concerning and highlighted potential issues management is having effectively turning assets into sales efficiently. At filing, their asset turnover metrics were 1.0, representing a -1.9% change from the previous period. Companies in the same industry and market capitalization are typically affected by this parameter by up to 1.8%. Their lackluster asset turnover metrics, specifically in contrast to leading industry peers' performance, could present significant headwinds. Underwhelming results in asset turnover metrics often lead to negative pressure in stock prices, so we rated its asset turnover momentum 56. Because their management is doing an excellent job managing these critical metrics, the cash_flow was given a score of 61.
