Destination XL Group Inc Stock Downgraded (DXLG)

Editor's Note: TheStreet ratings do not represent the views of TheStreet's staff or its contributors.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Destination XL Group (Nasdaq:DXLG) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from buy to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • 47.50% is the gross profit margin for DESTINATION XL GROUP INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of DXLG's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 1.08% trails the industry average.
  • DXLG, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 18.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.0%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, DXLG's share price has jumped by 67.76%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, however, we cannot assume that the stock's past performance is going to drive future results. Quite to the contrary, its sharp appreciation over the last year is one of the factors that should prompt investors to seek better opportunities elsewhere.
  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. In comparison to the other companies in the Specialty Retail industry and the overall market, DESTINATION XL GROUP INC's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$5.60 million or 627.80% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
