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 declining revenues.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on SINO go as follows:

  • This stock has increased by 30.71% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, however, we cannot assume that the stock's past performance is going to drive future results. Quite to the contrary, its sharp appreciation over the last year is one of the factors that should prompt investors to seek better opportunities elsewhere.
  • 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 9.3%. 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.

TheStreet Ratings rates Command Security as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on MOC go as follows:

  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, reflecting both the market's overall trend during that period and the fact that the company's earnings growth has been robust. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals will not have much impact in either direction, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
  • COMMAND SECURITY CORP 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 two years. During the past fiscal year, COMMAND SECURITY CORP increased its bottom line by earning $0.12 versus $0.04 in the prior year.
  • 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 Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, COMMAND SECURITY CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for COMMAND SECURITY CORP is currently extremely low, coming in at 13.03%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -0.35% trails that of the industry average.

TheStreet Ratings rates Radio One as a

sell

. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and generally high debt management risk.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on ROIA go as follows:

  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed against the S&P 500 and did not exceed that of the Media industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 39.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$18.11 million to -$25.18 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 Media industry and the overall market, RADIO ONE INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 15.39 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 2.68, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • The gross profit margin for RADIO ONE INC is rather high; currently it is at 68.24%. Regardless of ROIA's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, ROIA's net profit margin of -22.67% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
  • RADIO ONE INC's earnings per share declined by 39.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, RADIO ONE INC continued to lose money by earning -$1.30 versus -$1.33 in the prior year.
