TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates URS Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • URS's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 3.8%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 26.38% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 61.94% 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, URS should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • URS CORP has improved earnings per share by 26.4% 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, URS CORP turned its bottom line around by earning $4.17 versus -$6.03 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.25 versus $4.17).
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $40.60 million or 29.71% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, URS CORP has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 23.18%.
