. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on LUB go as follows:

  • LUB's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 0.9%. 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.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $10.95 million or 19.67% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -8.39%.
  • Compared to its price level of one year ago, LUB is down 24.85% to its most recent closing price of 4.99. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals will not have much impact either way, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
  • LUBYS INC's earnings per share declined by 33.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. Earnings per share have declined over the last year. We anticipate that this should continue in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, LUBYS INC reported lower earnings of $0.15 versus $0.27 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 106.7% in earnings (-$0.01 versus $0.15).
  • 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 29.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $2.46 million to $1.73 million.

. 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 feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on FLL go 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 20116.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.04 million to -$8.49 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC'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 $0.66 million or 63.99% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC's earnings have gone downhill when comparing its most recently reported quarter with the same quarter a year earlier. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.21 versus $1.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.14 versus -$0.21).
  • This stock's share value has moved by only 54.62% over the past year. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on UWN go as follows:

  • UWN's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.5%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.42, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. To add to this, UWN has a quick ratio of 1.72, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • 36.98% is the gross profit margin for NEVADA GOLD & CASINOS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, UWN's net profit margin of 2.22% significantly trails the industry average.
  • 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. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, NEVADA GOLD & CASINOS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
