Kennedy-Wilson Holdings Inc. Stock Downgraded (KW)

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Kennedy-Wilson Holdings (NYSE:KW) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • KW's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 9.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 72.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • This stock has managed to rise its share value by 22.84% over the past twelve months. Despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year, there is currently no conclusive evidence that warrants the purchase or sale of this stock.
  • KW's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.78 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further.
  • KENNEDY-WILSON HOLDINGS INC has shown improvement in its earnings for its most recently reported quarter when compared with the same quarter a year earlier. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, KENNEDY-WILSON HOLDINGS INC reported poor results of -$0.11 versus -$0.03 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 118.2% in earnings (-$0.24 versus -$0.11).
  • 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 Real Estate Management & Development industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, KENNEDY-WILSON HOLDINGS INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
.

Kennedy-Wilson Holdings, Inc., through its subsidiaries, operates as a real estate investment and services company in the United States and Japan. The company operates in two segments, KW Investments and KW Services. Kennedy-Wilson has a market cap of $582 million and is part of the financial sector and real estate industry. Shares are unchanged year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.
