NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Coeur D'Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE: CDE) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 13.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 10.1%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • CDE's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.06 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.01, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $113.20 million or 1.92% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -17.17%.
  • COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORP's earnings per share declined by 39.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORP turned its bottom line around by earning $1.05 versus -$0.94 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.78 versus $1.05).
  • 46.30% is the gross profit margin for COEUR D'ALENE MINES CORP 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, the net profit margin of 9.00% trails the industry average.

Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the ownership, operation, exploration, and development of silver and gold mining properties primarily located in the United States, Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina, and Australia. The company has a P/E ratio of 32.2, equal to the average metals & mining industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Coeur D'Alene Mines has a market cap of $2.23 billion and is part of the basic materials sector and metals & mining industry. Shares are up 2.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.
