TheStreet Ratings team rates ENTRAVISION COMMUNICATIONS as a "hold" with a ratings score of C-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ENTRAVISION COMMUNICATIONS (EVC) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed -- some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income and weak operating cash flow."

Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows:

  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, EVC's share price has jumped by 212.69%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Although EVC had significant growth over the past year, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock at the current time.
  • ENTRAVISION COMMUNICATIONS has experienced 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, ENTRAVISION COMMUNICATIONS turned its bottom line around by earning $0.15 versus -$0.09 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.24 versus $0.15).
  • EVC, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 4.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.2%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $5.17 million or 29.35% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Media industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 395.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $7.23 million to -$21.38 million.
