MJardin has a good chance to be a profitable company, as they are expanding in new geographical regions with experience and data from their software. Although they are currently spending more than they generate in revenue, they have a significant amount of cash balance to continue operations to survive till mid of next year.
Will its stock price improve in the long term? Less Likely
Based on the most recent annual filings, MJardin’s price to sales (P/S) is 9.38 which is high for most industries but at the same time not uncommon for this industry. Based on this ratio, MJardin stock is a bit risky, however, if you have the higher-risk appetite you can consider holding this stock till the P/S ratio reach below 6.
MJardin’s debt to equity ratio of 97.17% is very high and makes this stock risky as more debt means more risk. Due to interest rate expenses, high level of debt affected their profitability significantly even though their gross profit is rising in last three years. This is the bad.
The good is that MJardin is showing a persistent increase in its earnings growth for the last three years so investors should keep an eye on its EPS growth rate if they intend to hold stock for the long term.
The price to earnings ratio is used for measuring the company’s current share price relative to its per-share earnings. MJardin’s price to earnings ratio was at 5.62. When P/E is high it suggests that investors are expecting higher earnings growth in the near future as compared to the companies with a lower Price to earnings ratio. We can conclude from this that MJardin is undervalued at its market price.
For these reasons, we think MJardin, at or near its current price of $1 a share, can be a risky investment opportunity—though as earnings improve and debt is reduced then an opportunity can appear.
