Suncor Energy Inc Stock Upgraded (SU)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • SUNCOR ENERGY INC has improved earnings per share by 11.0% 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 two years. During the past fiscal year, SUNCOR ENERGY INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.63 versus $1.71 in the prior year.
  • SU's revenue growth trails the industry average of 25.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.6%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 60.72% to $2,803.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, SUNCOR ENERGY INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -18.42%.
  • SU's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.28 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.96 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
.

Suncor Energy Inc., together with its subsidiaries, operates as an integrated energy company. The company has a P/E ratio of 12.8, below the average energy industry P/E ratio of 16.3 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Suncor Energy has a market cap of $52.98 billion and is part of the basic materials sector and energy industry. Shares are up 19.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.
