'Strong and Under the Radar' stocks tend to be worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and price action. Market technicians refer to such stocks as being in an accumulation phase before a mark-up and peak. Traders and hedge funds have frequently found that these types of stocks continue to build a solid price base and then ultimately spike higher and peak when others 'discover' how good the stock is performing.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Interactive Brokers Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • IBKR's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 5.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 92.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP 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 year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP increased its bottom line by earning $0.77 versus $0.74 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.81 versus $0.77).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Capital Markets industry. The net income increased by 589.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $3.19 million to $22.00 million.
  • The gross profit margin for INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP is rather high; currently it is at 66.40%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, IBKR's net profit margin of 5.86% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 198.77% to $726.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 198.77%, INTERACTIVE BROKERS GROUP is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 272.65%.
