Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Coca-Cola as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. 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 company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Beverages industry and the overall market, COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 135.82% to $158.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -9.01%.
  • 39.18% is the gross profit margin for COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, CCE's net profit margin of 5.88% significantly trails the industry average.
  • CCE, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 8.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 12.8%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES INC's earnings per share declined by 9.1% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.64 versus $2.45 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 3.7% in earnings ($2.54 versus $2.64).
