TheStreet Ratings rates Oaktree Capital Group as a sell. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its poor profit margins. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The gross profit margin for OAKTREE CAPITAL GROUP LLC is rather high; currently it is at 55.09%. Regardless of OAK'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 8.95% trails the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 234.82% to $2,216.67 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, OAKTREE CAPITAL GROUP LLC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 8.52%.

- This stock has increased by 36.93% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the future course of this stock, we feel that the risks involved in investing in OAK do not compensate for any future upside potential, despite the fact that it has seen nice gains over the past 12 months.
- OAKTREE CAPITAL GROUP LLC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue.

This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.78 versus $3.56).
