Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Bemis as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, growth in earnings per share, notable return on equity, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and relatively strong performance when compared with the S&P 500 during the past year. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 110.81% to $140.40 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, BEMIS CO INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -11.33%.
  • BEMIS CO INC's earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, BEMIS CO INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.47 versus $2.36 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.75 versus $2.47).
  • 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 Containers & Packaging industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, BEMIS CO INC has underperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has exceeded that of the S&P 500.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 10.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 6.6%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • Even though the current debt-to-equity ratio is 1.15, it is still below the industry average, suggesting that this level of debt is acceptable within the Containers & Packaging industry. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 0.87 is weak.
