Teck Resources Ltd Class B Stock Downgraded (TCK)

Editor's Note: TheStreet ratings do not represent the views of TheStreet's staff or its contributors.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Teck Resources Ltd Class B (NYSE: TCK) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • 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. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.53, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • 38.70% is the gross profit margin for TECK RESOURCES LTD which we consider to be strong. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, TCK's net profit margin of 10.50% is significantly lower than the same period one year prior.
  • 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 Metals & Mining industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, TECK RESOURCES LTD has outperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Metals & Mining industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 64.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $756.00 million to $268.00 million.

Teck Resources Limited operates as a diversified mining, mineral processing, and metallurgical company. It is involved in exploring, developing, smelting, refining, safety, environmental protecting, product stewardship, recycling, and researching activities. The company has a P/E ratio of 9.2, above the average metals & mining industry P/E ratio of 8.8 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Teck Resources Ltd Class B has a market cap of $16.58 billion and is part of the basic materials sector and metals & mining industry. Shares are down 15.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.
