Wacoal Holdings Corporatiom Stock Downgraded (WACLY)

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Wacoal Holdings Corporatiom (Nasdaq:WACLY) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • WACOAL HOLDINGS CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement 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, WACOAL HOLDINGS CORP increased its bottom line by earning $2.98 versus $1.19 in the prior year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry. The net income increased by 50.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$23.13 million to -$11.53 million.
  • The gross profit margin for WACOAL HOLDINGS CORP is rather high; currently it is at 51.60%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -3.10% is in-line with the industry average.
  • WACLY has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 10.61% 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.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$14.99 million or 1132.30% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.

Wacoal Holdings Corp. designs, manufactures, and markets women's intimate apparel primarily in Japan, rest of Asia, the Americas, and Europe. It provides foundation garments, including brassieres and girdles; and lingerie, such as slips, bra-slips, and women's briefs. The company has a P/E ratio of 19, equal to the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Wacoal Holdings Corporatiom has a market cap of $1.59 billion and is part of the consumer goods sector and consumer non-durables industry. Shares are down 14.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.
