Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Royal Bank of Scotland Group (The as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Commercial Banks industry average. The net income increased by 9.9% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $1,441.43 million to $1,584.81 million.
  • ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND GROUP has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND GROUP turned its bottom line around by earning $0.00 versus -$2.68 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an increase in earnings to $72.53 from $0.00.
  • Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. Compared to other companies in the Commercial Banks industry and the overall market, ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND GROUP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 35.02%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 115.00% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
