[iu-adbox]

<span style="color: red;"> <strong>✗ </strong></span><strong>Earnings-per-Share (EPS) Growth: </strong>Entergy reported a recent EPS growth rate of 2.3%. That's below the electric utilities industry average of 181.43%. That's not a good sign. We like to see companies that have higher earnings growth.

<span style="color: green;"><strong>✓ </strong></span><strong>Price-to-Earnings (P/E): </strong>The average price-to-earnings ratio of the electric utilities industry is 45.79. And Entergy's ratio comes in at 11.29. It's trading at a better value than many of its competitors.

<span style="color: red;"> <strong>✗ </strong></span><strong>Debt-to-Equity: </strong>The debt-to-equity ratio for Entergy stock is 182.43%. That's above the electric utilities industry average of 129.19. That's not a good sign.

<span style="color: red;"> <strong>✗ </strong></span><strong>Free Cash Flow per Share Growth: </strong>Entergy has decreased its FCF per share over the last year relative to its competitors. That's not good for investors. In general, if a company is growing its FCF, it will be able to pay down debt, buy back stock, pay out more in dividends and/or invest money back into the business to help boost growth.

<span style="color: red;"> <strong>✗ </strong></span><strong>Profit Margins: </strong>The profit margin of Entergy comes in at 12.38% today. And generally, the higher, the better. We also like to see this ratio above competitors. Entergy's profit margin is below the electric utilities average of 27.84%. So that's a negative indicator for investors.

<span style="color: red;"> <strong>✗ </strong></span><strong>Return on Equity: </strong>Return on equity gives us a look at the amount of net income returned to shareholders. The ROE for Entergy is -9.36% and that's below its industry average ROE of 8.99%.
