P.T. Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk. Stock Downgraded (TLK)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- P.T. Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk (NYSE: TLK) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 4.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.39, 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 0.73 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Diversified Telecommunication Services industry and the overall market, TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Reflecting the weaknesses we have cited, including the decline in the company's earnings per share, TLK has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 10.13% from its price level of one year ago. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.

Perusahaan Perseroan (Persero) PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk provides telecommunication and network services worldwide. The company has a P/E ratio of 11.5, below the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio of 25 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. P.T. Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk has a market cap of $15 billion and is part of the technology sector and telecommunications industry. Shares are down 0.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.
