Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Aon as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations, growth in earnings per share and solid stock price performance. 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:

  • 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, AON PLC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 100.73% to $273.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, AON PLC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -18.22%.
  • AON PLC reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. 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, AON PLC increased its bottom line by earning $4.89 versus $4.67 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($6.55 versus $4.89).
  • Despite the weak revenue results, AON has outperformed against the industry average of 15.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.9%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and greatly outperformed compared to the Insurance industry average. The net income has decreased by 4.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $328.00 million to $315.00 million.
