TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates American Equity Investment Life Holding Com as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- AEL's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 8.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 127.8%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 470.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 74.87% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, AEL should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Insurance industry. The net income increased by 540.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $18.76 million to $120.11 million.
- 45.48% is the gross profit margin for AMERICAN EQTY INVT LIFE HLDG which we consider to be strong. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 27.32% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
