. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on RYAAY go as follows:

  • 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. To add to this, RYAAY has a quick ratio of 2.11, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • 43.41% is the gross profit margin for RYANAIR HOLDINGS PLC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 30.35% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 110.38% to $134.86 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, RYANAIR HOLDINGS PLC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -5.21%.
  • 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 Airlines industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, RYANAIR HOLDINGS PLC has underperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has exceeded that of the S&P 500.
  • Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company's shares by a sharp 46.34% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. We feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The other strengths this company shows, however, justify the higher price levels.

. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins, feeble growth in its earnings per share and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on IDI 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 Media industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 46.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.54 million to -$0.79 million.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Media industry and the overall market, TIGER MEDIA INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for TIGER MEDIA INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 13.99%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -89.30% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • TIGER MEDIA INC reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. The company has suffered a declining pattern earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, TIGER MEDIA INC reported poor results of -$0.12 versus -$0.03 in the prior year.
  • IDI'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 47.25%, which is also worse than the performance of the S&P 500 Index. 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 weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CNYD go as follows:

  • CHINA YIDA HOLDING CO 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. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, CHINA YIDA HOLDING CO swung to a loss, reporting -$4.24 versus $0.06 in the prior year.
  • 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 Media industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 249.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$3.63 million to -$12.68 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, CHINA YIDA HOLDING CO's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to -$2.52 million or 19.92% 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.
  • The share price of CHINA YIDA HOLDING CO has not done very well: it is down 9.33% and has underperformed the S&P 500, in part reflecting the company's sharply declining earnings per share when compared to the year-earlier quarter. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
