The other question to consider is one of earnings manipulation. There is a lot of pressure on management each quarter to deliver on earnings expectations. The Beneish M-Score is a statistical model that provides some insight into whether the company might be manipulating earnings. With a Beneish M-Score of −2.91, the model suggests that the company is not likely to be an earnings manipulator. A value of −2.91 implies a 0.2% chance of earnings manipulation.
