'Strong and Under the Radar' stocks tend to be worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and price action. Market technicians refer to such stocks as being in an accumulation phase before a mark-up and peak. Traders and hedge funds have frequently found that these types of stocks continue to build a solid price base and then ultimately spike higher and peak when others 'discover' how good the stock is performing.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Berry Plastics Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Compared to other companies in the Containers & Packaging industry and the overall market, BERRY PLASTICS GROUP INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 9.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 31.9%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • BERRY PLASTICS GROUP INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, BERRY PLASTICS GROUP INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.70 versus $0.51 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.10 versus $0.70).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Containers & Packaging industry. The net income increased by 55.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $38.00 million to $59.00 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 51.78% to $170.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, BERRY PLASTICS GROUP INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -68.38%.
