Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Arch Capital Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and reasonable valuation levels. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • ACGL's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.15 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Insurance industry and the overall market, ARCH CAPITAL GROUP LTD's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, ACGL's share price has jumped by 42.80%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, ACGL should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $299.74 million or 17.59% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, ARCH CAPITAL GROUP LTD has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -45.78%.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 12.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.7%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
