Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Rubicon Project as a

sell

. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$7.44 million or 258.18% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • The gross profit margin for RUBICON PROJECT INC is currently very high, coming in at 82.44%. Regardless of RUBI's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, RUBI's net profit margin of -4.68% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
  • Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, RUBICON PROJECT INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • RUBI 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. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.42, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • This stock has increased by 46.28% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the future course of this stock, we feel that the risks involved in investing in RUBI do not compensate for any future upside potential, despite the fact that it has seen nice gains over the past 12 months.
