Learn more.TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:TheStreet Quant Ratings rates ONEOK as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, increase in stock price during the past year and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.Highlights from the ratings report include:
- Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 17.9%. 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.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 111.58% to $233.27 million when compared to the same quarter last year.
- Compared to where it was trading one year ago, OKE is up 25.06% to its most recent closing price of 57.53. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.
- The net income has decreased by 4.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $65.22 million to $62.36 million.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization.
