Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Adeptus Health as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, notable return on equity and robust revenue growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including premium valuation, generally higher debt management risk and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 610.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 343.82% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period.
  • Compared to other companies in the Health Care Providers & Services industry and the overall market, ADEPTUS HEALTH INC's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • ADEPTUS HEALTH INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.16 versus -$0.17).
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.80 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Despite the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, the company has managed to keep a very strong quick ratio of 2.57, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
