Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates WebMD Health as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. 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:

  • WEBMD HEALTH CORP has improved earnings per share by 44.0% 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. During the past fiscal year, WEBMD HEALTH CORP increased its bottom line by earning $1.49 versus $0.97 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.86 versus $1.49).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Internet Software & Services industry. The net income increased by 57.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $10.00 million to $15.72 million.
  • WBMD's revenue growth trails the industry average of 20.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 10.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The gross profit margin for WEBMD HEALTH CORP is rather high; currently it is at 60.57%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, WBMD's net profit margin of 9.91% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $25.92 million or 6.32% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, WEBMD HEALTH CORP's cash flow growth rate is still lower than the industry average growth rate of 19.50%.
