Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Tutor Perini 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, attractive valuation levels, increase in net income and growth in earnings per share. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 9.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.8%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.57, 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 1.13, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Construction & Engineering industry. The net income increased by 200.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $5.13 million to $15.40 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 786.05% to $15.94 million when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 786.05%, TUTOR PERINI CORP is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 29425.00%.
