Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Multi-Color as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, reasonable valuation levels and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 4.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 7.3%. 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.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, LABL's share price has jumped by 48.61%, 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, LABL should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • MULTI-COLOR CORP' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, MULTI-COLOR CORP increased its bottom line by earning $2.73 versus $1.69 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.76 versus $2.73).
  • 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 Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, MULTI-COLOR CORP has underperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has exceeded that of the S&P 500.
