TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates TransDigm Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 8.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.8%. 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.
  • TRANSDIGM GROUP INC has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TRANSDIGM GROUP INC increased its bottom line by earning $5.97 versus $2.80 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($6.85 versus $5.97).
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. In comparison to other companies in the Aerospace & Defense industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, TRANSDIGM GROUP INC has underperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for TRANSDIGM GROUP INC is rather high; currently it is at 56.79%. Regardless of TDG's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, TDG's net profit margin of 15.68% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 5.41 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Regardless of the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, TDG has managed to keep a strong quick ratio of 2.16, which demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
