B Stock  USD 45.76  0.12  0.26%   
This module uses fundamental data of Barnes to approximate the value of its Beneish M Score. Barnes M Score tells investors if the company management is likely to be manipulating earnings. The score is calculated using eight financial indicators that are adjusted by a specific multiplier. Please note, the M Score is a probabilistic model and cannot detect companies that manipulate their earnings with 100% accuracy. Continue to Barnes Piotroski F Score and Barnes Altman Z Score analysis.
Barnes Total Debt is projected to increase significantly based on the last few years of reporting. The past year's Total Debt was at 694.22 Million. The current year Debt Current is expected to grow to about 3.4 M, whereas Issuance Repayment of Debt Securities is forecasted to decline to (62.2 M). Barnes Interest Coverage is projected to slightly decrease based on the last few years of reporting. The past year's Interest Coverage was at 8.33. The current year Long Term Debt to Equity is expected to grow to 0.42, whereas Cash Flow Per Share is forecasted to decline to 2.92.
At this time, it appears that Barnes Group is an unlikely manipulator. The earnings manipulation may begin if Barnes' top management creates an artificial sense of financial success, forcing the stock price to be traded at a high price-earnings multiple than it should be. In general, excessive earnings management by Barnes executives may lead to removing some of the operating profits from subsequent periods to inflate earnings in the following periods. This way, the manipulation of Barnes' earnings can lead to misrepresentations of actual financial condition, taking the otherwise loyal stakeholders on to the path of questionable ethical practices and plain fraud.

Barnes Beneish M-Score Indicator Trends

The cure to earnings manipulation is the transparency of financial reporting. It will typically remove the temptation of the top executives to inflate earnings (i.e., to promote the idea of 'winning at any cost'). Because a healthy internal audit department can enhance transparency, the board should promote the auditors' access to all the record-keeping systems across the enterprise. For example, if Barnes' auditors report directly to the board (not management), the managers will be reluctant to manipulate simply due to the fear of punishment. On the other hand, the auditors will be free to investigate the ledgers properly because they know that the board has their back.

Barnes Group Beneish M-Score Driver Matrix

One of the toughest challenges investors face today is learning how to quickly synthesize historical financial statements and information provided by the company, SEC reporting, and various external parties in order to detect the potential manipulation of earnings. Understanding the correlation between Barnes' different financial indicators related to revenue, expenses, operating profit, and net earnings helps investors identify and prioritize their investing strategies towards Barnes in a much-optimized way. Analyzing correlations between earnings drivers directly associated with dollar figures is the most effective way to find Barnes' degree of accounting gimmicks and manipulations.

About Barnes Beneish M Score

M-Score is one of many grading techniques for value stocks. It was developed by Professor M. Daniel Beneish of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and published in 1999 under the paper titled The Detection of Earnings Manipulation. The Beneish score is a multi-factor model that utilizes financial identifiers to compile eight variables used to classify whether a company has manipulated its reported earnings. The variables are built from the officially filed financial statements to create a final score call 'M Score.' The score helps to identify companies that are likely to manipulate their profits if they show deteriorating gross margins, operating expenses, and leverage against growing revenue.

Operating Margin


Barnes Operating Margin is projected to increase slightly based on the last few years of reporting. The past year's Operating Margin was at 10.73

Barnes Earnings Manipulation Drivers

Although earnings manipulation is typically not the result of intentional misconduct by the c-level executives, it is still a widespread practice by the senior management of public companies such as Barnes. It is usually done by a series of misrepresentations of various accounting rules and operating activities across multiple financial cycles. The best way to spot the manipulation is to examine the historical financial statement to find inconsistencies in earning reports to find trends in assets or liabilities that are not sustainable in the future.

This measure is expressed in what is known as the correlation coefficient, which ranges between -1 and +1. A perfect positive correlation (i.e., a correlation coefficient of +1) implies that as Barnes moves, either up or down, the other security will move in the same direction. Alternatively, perfect negative correlation means that if Barnes Group moves in either direction, the perfectly negatively correlated security will move in the opposite direction.

A correlation greater than 0.8 is generally described as strong, whereas a correlation less than 0.5 is generally considered weak.

The market value of Barnes Group is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Barnes that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Barnes' value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Barnes' true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Barnes' market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Barnes' underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Barnes' value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Barnes value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Barnes' price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
