TheStreet Ratings team rates KU6 MEDIA CO LTD -ADR as a Sell with a ratings score of D-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate KU6 MEDIA CO LTD -ADR (KUTV) a SELL. This is driven by multiple weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins."

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

  • 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 Internet Software & Services industry. The net income has decreased by 5.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from -$3.25 million to -$3.44 million.
  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Internet Software & Services industry and the overall market, KU6 MEDIA CO LTD -ADR's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$3.86 million or 100.98% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • The gross profit margin for KU6 MEDIA CO LTD -ADR is currently extremely low, coming in at 14.89%.
