Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Burlington Stores as a

sell

. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is higher, and it has outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry, implying reduced upside potential.
  • 40.36% is the gross profit margin for BURLINGTON STORES INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 2.91% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 238.97% to $30.38 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, BURLINGTON STORES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -1.85%.
  • BURLINGTON STORES INC 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. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, BURLINGTON STORES INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.03 versus $0.85 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.78 versus $2.03).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Specialty Retail industry. The net income increased by 46.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $25.70 million to $37.51 million.
