Shutterfly Inc. Stock Downgraded (SFLY)
- SFLY's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 19.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 27.8%. 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.
- SFLY has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.74, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, SFLY's share price has jumped by 57.34%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Setting our sights on the months ahead, however, we feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The implication is that its reduced upside potential is not good enough to warrant further investment at this time.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Internet & Catalog Retail industry. The net income has decreased by 23.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from -$10.04 million to -$12.41 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$83.50 million or 74.10% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
