Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Press Ganey Holdings as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 1.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 15.8%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.32, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.50, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • Compared to other companies in the Health Care Technology industry and the overall market, PRESS GANEY HOLDINGS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for PRESS GANEY HOLDINGS INC is rather high; currently it is at 57.95%. Regardless of PGND's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 9.35% trails the industry average.
