Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Aegon as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $3,188.06 million or 26.95% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -16.84%.
  • AEG, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 15.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 40.1%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Insurance industry and the overall market, AEGON NV's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for AEGON NV is currently extremely low, coming in at 1.69%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 1.28% trails that of the industry average.
