TheStreet Ratings rates Sino-Global Shipping America as a sell. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its relatively poor performance when compared with the S&P 500 during the past year.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on SINO go as follows:

  • In its most recent trading session, SINO has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Transportation Infrastructure industry and the overall market, SINO-GLOBAL SHIPPING AMERICA's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • SINO, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 9.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 10.6%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • SINO-GLOBAL SHIPPING AMERICA reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. During the past fiscal year, SINO-GLOBAL SHIPPING AMERICA continued to lose money by earning -$0.39 versus -$0.61 in the prior year.
  • The gross profit margin for SINO-GLOBAL SHIPPING AMERICA is rather high; currently it is at 56.07%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 15.58% trails the industry average.
