Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The gross profit margin for NEUSTAR INC is currently very high, coming in at 78.10%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 21.66% is above that of the industry average.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 21.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $37.77 million to $45.75 million.
- NEUSTAR INC has improved earnings per share by 33.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, NEUSTAR INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.66 versus $1.64 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.01 versus $1.66).
- Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. 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.
