Learn more.TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Organovo Holdings as a sell. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its disappointing return on equity.Highlights from the ratings report include:
- Compared to other companies in the Biotechnology industry and the overall market, ORGANOVO HOLDINGS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to -$2.76 million or 22.52% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -19.72%.
- ONVO's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.00 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, ONVO has a quick ratio of 1.88, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- This stock has increased by 171.29% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Despite the fact that the stock's value has already enjoyed nice gains in the past year, we feel that the risks surrounding an investment in this stock outweigh any potential future returns.
