Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Science Applications International as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. 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 revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 8.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.5%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $108.00 million or 12.50% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, SCIENCE APPLICATIONS INTL CP's cash flow growth rate is still lower than the industry average growth rate of 32.06%.
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period, despite the company's weak earnings results. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • SCIENCE APPLICATIONS INTL CP's earnings per share declined by 20.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, SCIENCE APPLICATIONS INTL CP reported lower earnings of $2.47 versus $2.91 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.11 versus $2.47).
