Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Kraft Foods Group as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and premium valuation.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 10.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.2%. 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 $1,140.00 million or 23.37% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, KRAFT FOODS GROUP INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -36.56%.
  • The gross profit margin for KRAFT FOODS GROUP INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 12.67%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -8.47% is significantly below that of the industry average.
