Learn more.TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Pioneer Southwest Energy Partners as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 6.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 24.9%. 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.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, PSE's share price has jumped by 56.74%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, PSE should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- The gross profit margin for PIONEER SOUTHWEST ENERGY -LP is rather high; currently it is at 65.65%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 56.27% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $31.23 million or 17.37% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -15.97%.
- PSE's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.65 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Despite the fact that PSE's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 0.60 is low and demonstrates weak liquidity.
