TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Men's Wearhouse as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The gross profit margin for MENS WEARHOUSE INC is rather high; currently it is at 51.12%. Regardless of MW'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 6.63% trails the industry average.
  • MW, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 19.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.3%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Specialty Retail industry and the overall market, MENS WEARHOUSE INC's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • MENS WEARHOUSE INC's earnings per share declined by 26.1% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, MENS WEARHOUSE INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.55 versus $2.31 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 3.9% in earnings ($2.45 versus $2.55).
