TheStreet Ratings Top 10 Rating Changes

Rating Change #3

SK Telecom Co. Ltd (SKM - Get Report) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • SKM, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 3.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 0.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • In its most recent trading session, SKM has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. 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.
  • SK TELECOM CO LTD's earnings per share declined by 40.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. 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, SK TELECOM CO LTD increased its bottom line by earning $2.13 versus $1.85 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 17.8% in earnings ($1.75 versus $2.13).
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the Wireless Telecommunication Services industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has significantly decreased by 41.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $494.45 million to $291.11 million.

SK Telecom Co., Ltd. provides wireless telecommunications services principally in Korea. The company has a P/E ratio of 6.7, below the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio of 7.3 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. SK Telecom has a market cap of $8.79 billion and is part of the technology sector and telecommunications industry. Shares are up 5.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.
