NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Meadowbrook Insurance Group (NYSE: MIG) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • MIG, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 17.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 11.4%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Insurance industry average. The net income has decreased by 12.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $8.10 million to $7.08 million.
  • 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 Insurance industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, MEADOWBROOK INS GROUP INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
