Shiloh Industries Inc. Stock Upgraded (SHLO)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Shiloh Industries (Nasdaq: SHLO) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. In comparison to the other companies in the Auto Components industry and the overall market, SHILOH INDUSTRIES INC's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.31, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 1.00 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • SHILOH INDUSTRIES INC has improved earnings per share by 5.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, SHILOH INDUSTRIES INC turned its bottom line around by earning $0.24 versus -$1.09 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.66 versus $0.24).
  • The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • SHLO's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 16.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 16.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.

Shiloh Industries, Inc. manufactures and sells first operation blanks, engineered welded blanks, complex stampings, and modular assemblies for the automotive, heavy truck, and other industrial markets in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 33.9, below the average industrial industry P/E ratio of 35 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shiloh has a market cap of $175.9 million and is part of the industrial goods sector and industrial industry. Shares are down 8.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.
