Recent News & Updates
Freshpet Has A Lot Of Potential, But Also Significant Risks
Freshpet's net sales experienced explosive growth during the last decade and the trend is expected to continue. FRPT's price to sales ratio is very high, despite the recent selloff, due to high growth expectations. Gross profit margins are overall good, but cash from operations is negative as inflationary pressures and supply chain issues are significantly impacting operations. Share dilution, debt, and private labels are serious risks that should be considered. Freshpet is a very speculative investment with huge potential but significant risks.
