TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Ingredion as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.75, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. To add to this, INGR has a quick ratio of 1.71, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 52.07% to $257.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, INGREDION INC has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 47.64%.
  • INGREDION INC' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, INGREDION INC reported lower earnings of $5.06 versus $5.48 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.51 versus $5.06).
  • INGR, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 2.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 8.5%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
