The Index is recording a rising gross margin. Inventories are up, diminishing the chance of a future increase in the gross margin. SG&A expenses are low in the record of the Index and rising. That implies that the Index has limited scope for further cost containment and rising costs are slowing the EBITDA growth rate relative to sales. The gross margin is rising at a faster rate than SG&A expenses, producing a rising EBITDA margin. The shares have been highly correlated with the direction of the profit margins. Interest costs are low in the record of the Index and rising. Higher interest costs not only slow the free cash flow growth rate of the Index, but are often associated with lower valuation.
