Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Dorman Products as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, growth in earnings per share, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • DORM's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 11.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.8%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • DORM has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.92, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • DORMAN PRODUCTS INC has improved earnings per share by 14.8% 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, DORMAN PRODUCTS INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.82 versus $1.54 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.21 versus $1.82).
  • 40.68% is the gross profit margin for DORMAN PRODUCTS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 12.86% is above that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 199.24% to $15.53 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, DORMAN PRODUCTS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 10.81%.
