NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Alliance Bancorp Inc Of Pennsylvania (Nasdaq: ALLB) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, impressive record of earnings per share growth, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

  • ALLIANCE BANCORP OF PA reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. Stable Earnings per share over the past year indicate the company has sound management over its earnings and share float. During the past fiscal year, ALLIANCE BANCORP OF PA increased its bottom line by earning $0.20 versus $0.20 in the prior year.
  • The gross profit margin for ALLIANCE BANCORP OF PA is currently very high, coming in at 78.80%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 13.60% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 280.66% to $4.10 million when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 280.66%, ALLIANCE BANCORP OF PA is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 588.13%.
