Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Cardtronics as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 7.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the IT Services industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income increased by 1.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $15.23 million to $15.38 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $44.65 million or 44.64% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CARDTRONICS PLC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -23.35%.
  • CARDTRONICS PLC reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. 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, CARDTRONICS PLC increased its bottom line by earning $1.48 versus $0.82 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.13 versus $1.48).
  • 35.41% is the gross profit margin for CARDTRONICS PLC 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 5.07% trails the industry average.
