Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Teleflex as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 5.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Health Care Equipment & Supplies industry. The net income increased by 114.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $21.74 million to $46.57 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 52.39% to $78.65 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, TELEFLEX INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -58.50%.
  • The gross profit margin for TELEFLEX INC is rather high; currently it is at 55.38%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 11.25% trails the industry average.
  • Despite currently having a low debt-to-equity ratio of 0.53, it is higher than that of the industry average, inferring that management of debt levels may need to be evaluated further. Despite the fact that TFX's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 2.39 is high and demonstrates strong liquidity.
