Learn more.TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:TheStreet Quant Ratings rates CME Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, increase in net income, reasonable valuation levels and expanding profit margins. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.Highlights from the ratings report include:
- Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- Compared to where it was trading one year ago, CME is up 47.19% to its most recent closing price of 78.84. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.
- The net income increased by 8.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $218.00 million to $236.70 million.
- The gross profit margin for CME GROUP INC is rather high; currently it is at 65.14%. Regardless of CME's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year.
