TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates HomeAway as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • AWAY's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 15.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 23.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • AWAY has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. To add to this, AWAY has a quick ratio of 1.93, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $18.70 million or 19.04% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 8.29%.
  • 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. Compared to other companies in the Internet & Catalog Retail industry and the overall market, HOMEAWAY INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
