NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- In the third quarter of 2015, the S&P 500 Consumer Discretionary index fell, but at a lower rate than the reset of the market.

The consumer sector was down nearly 4% while the S&P 500 as a whole declined about 7% in what was the worst quarter for stocks in four years. In the first half of the year, S&P Consumer Discretionary grew at 6% compare to 1.2% for the S&P 500.

Consumption minus inflation increased at a monthly rate of 0.4% in August, in annual terms it amounts to 3.6%, which is expected to keep GDP growth in the third quarter of 2015 above 3%. Consumer confidence drives much of the consumer discretionary sector, which includes autos, consumer durables, and media spending.

Goldman Sachs (GS) - Get Report cut its forecast for year-end S&P 500 to 2,000, down from 2,100, based on lower price of oil and slower pace of economic growth in the U.S. and China.

That said, here were the worst performing in a very bad quarter. TheStreet paired the 10 best performing materials sector stocks with TheStreet Ratings to determine whether they really are poor investments going forward.

Here are the 10 stocks in the consumer discretionary sector which had the worst third-quarter.

TheStreet
paired each of these tickers with TheStreet Ratings to let you know if you should buy, sell, or hold these best performing stocks. (Note: Because of TheStreet Ratings parameters, not all stocks on this list have a rating).


TheStreet Ratings, TheStreet's proprietary ratings tool, projects a stock's total return potential over a 12-month period including both price appreciation and dividends. Based on 32 major data points, TheStreet Ratings uses a quantitative approach to rating over 4,300 stocks to predict return potential for the next year. The model is both objective, using elements such as volatility of past operating revenues, financial strength, and company cash flows, and subjective, including expected equities market returns, future interest rates, implied industry outlook and forecasted company earnings.

Buying an S&P 500 stock that TheStreet Ratings rated a "buy" yielded a 16.56% return in 2014 beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by 304 basis points. Buying a Russell 2000 stock that TheStreet Ratings rated a "buy" yielded a 9.5% return in 2014, beating the Russell 2000 index, including dividends reinvested, by 460 basis points last year.

TheStreet Ratings team rates MACY'S INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate MACY'S INC (M) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

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

  • 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. When compared to other companies in the Multiline Retail industry and the overall market, MACY'S INC's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
  • MACY'S INC's earnings per share declined by 20.0% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, MACY'S INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.27 versus $3.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.71 versus $4.27).
  • 40.86% is the gross profit margin for MACY'S INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of M's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 3.55% trails the industry average.
  • M, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 7.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.6%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Reflecting the weaknesses we have cited, including the decline in the company's earnings per share, M has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 12.56% from its price level of one year ago. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of the overall market trend could certainly make a critical difference, we do not see any strong reason stemming from the company's fundamentals that would cause a continuation of last year's decline. In fact, the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings.

9. Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc.

(SNI)


Rating: Hold, C
Market Cap: $6.3 billion
Year-to-date return: -24.75%

Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. develops lifestyle-oriented content for linear and interactive video platforms in the United States, the United Kingdom and other European markets, the Middle East and Africa, the Asia-Pacific, and Latin America.

TheStreet Ratings team rates SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE (SNI) 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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, increase in net income and revenue growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and generally higher debt management risk.

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

  • SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE has improved earnings per share by 39.3% 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. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE increased its bottom line by earning $3.83 versus $3.40 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.52 versus $3.83).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Media industry. The net income increased by 25.9% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $153.79 million to $193.72 million.
  • SNI's stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 36.17%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last quarter. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.49 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Despite the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, the company has managed to keep a very strong quick ratio of 8.46, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs.

TheStreet Ratings team rates GAP INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate GAP INC (GPS) 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 largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

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

  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.50, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels.
  • 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. When compared to other companies in the Specialty Retail industry and the overall market, GAP INC's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
  • 41.46% is the gross profit margin for GAP INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of GPS's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 5.61% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $431.00 million or 10.76% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 10.76%, GAP INC is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -10.94%.
  • 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 Specialty Retail industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 34.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $332.00 million to $219.00 million.

TheStreet Ratings team rates KOHL'S CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate KOHL'S CORP (KSS) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

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

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 7.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 0.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.89, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.29 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
  • KOHL'S CORP's earnings per share declined by 41.6% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, KOHL'S CORP increased its bottom line by earning $4.26 versus $4.07 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.34 versus $4.26).
  • 38.93% is the gross profit margin for KOHL'S CORP which we consider to be strong. Regardless of KSS's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 3.04% trails the industry average.

TST Recommends

We rate BORGWARNER INC (BWA) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

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

  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.49, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. To add to this, BWA has a quick ratio of 1.64, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.

  • BORGWARNER INC's earnings per share declined by 21.7% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently.

We rate TRIPADVISOR INC (TRIP) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. 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, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

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

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 33.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 25.4%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • TRIP's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.23 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, TRIP has a quick ratio of 1.87, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The gross profit margin for TRIPADVISOR INC is currently very high, coming in at 96.05%. Regardless of TRIP's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year.

  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $200.00 million or 26.58% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 26.58%, TRIPADVISOR INC is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 86.23%.

We rate CBS CORP (CBS) 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 revenue growth, notable return on equity and reasonable valuation levels.

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

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 6.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.0%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.

We rate TEGNA INC (TGNA) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

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

  • VIACOM INC has improved earnings per share by 5.0% 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, VIACOM INC increased its bottom line by earning $5.45 versus $4.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($10.96 versus $5.45).

TheStreet Ratings team rates WYNN RESORTS LTD as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

We rate WYNN RESORTS LTD (WYNN) 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. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and weak operating cash flow.

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

  • 37.14% is the gross profit margin for WYNN RESORTS LTD which we consider to be strong. Regardless of WYNN's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 5.42% trails the industry average.
  • WYNN, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 26.3%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • WYNN RESORTS LTD 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. Stable earnings per share over the past year indicate the company has managed its earnings and share float. We anticipate this stability to falter in the coming year and, in turn, the company to deliver lower earnings per share than prior full year. During the past fiscal year, WYNN RESORTS LTD's EPS of $7.17 remained unchanged from the prior years' EPS of $7.17. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 55.4% in earnings ($3.20 versus $7.17).
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 67.83%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 72.00% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Despite the heavy decline in its share price, this stock is still more expensive (when compared to its current earnings) than most other companies in its industry.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $201.34 million or 45.41% 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.
