Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Buffalo Wild Wings as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 0.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 16.5%. 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 slightly increased to $53.51 million or 4.52% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, BUFFALO WILD WINGS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -59.32%.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, BWLD's share price has jumped by 36.10%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
  • BUFFALO WILD WINGS INC's earnings per share declined by 10.4% 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, BUFFALO WILD WINGS INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.95 versus $3.80 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.58 versus $4.95).
  • BWLD has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.78 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
