Gordman's Stores Inc. Stock Downgraded (GMAN)

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Gordman's Stores (Nasdaq:GMAN) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company has favored debt over equity in the management of its balance sheet.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • GMAN's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 1.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 9.6%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company's shares by a sharp 54.79% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. Although GMAN had significant growth over the past year, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock at the current time.
  • 46.40% is the gross profit margin for GORDMANS STORES INC which we consider to be strong. 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 2.70% trails the industry average.
  • GMAN's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.00 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Despite the fact that GMAN's debt-to-equity ratio is low, the quick ratio, which is currently 0.67, displays a potential problem in covering short-term cash needs.

Gordmans Stores, Inc. operates department stores under the Gordmans name in the United States. Its merchandise selection includes a range of apparel, footwear, home fashions products, and accessories, including fragrances. The company has a P/E ratio of 13.1, equal to the average retail industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Gordman's Stores has a market cap of $346.1 million and is part of the services sector and retail industry. Shares are up 42.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.
