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 very highly correlated with the direction of the profit margins.
