NEW YORK (

TheStreet

)

-- Oracle Corporation

(NYSE:

ORCL

) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of A-. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, increase in net income, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $6,292.00 million or 10.95% when compared to the same quarter last year.
  • The net income increased by 7.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $2,034.00 million to $2,191.00 million.
  • 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 where it was trading one year ago, ORCL is up 14.95% to its most recent closing price of 34.94. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.

Oracle Corporation develops, manufactures, markets, hosts, and supports database and middleware software, applications software, and hardware systems. Oracle has a market cap of $158.4 billion and is part of the technology sector and computer software & services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.00, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 18.00. Shares are up 4.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.
