Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates National Beverage 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, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 7.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.1%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • FIZZ 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. To add to this, FIZZ has a quick ratio of 2.23, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • NATIONAL BEVERAGE CORP has improved earnings per share by 26.3% 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. During the past fiscal year, NATIONAL BEVERAGE CORP increased its bottom line by earning $1.06 versus $0.93 in the prior year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Beverages industry. The net income increased by 27.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $8.81 million to $11.24 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 130.87% to $12.66 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, NATIONAL BEVERAGE CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -47.25%.
