Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Voya Financial as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • VOYA's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 7.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 14.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • VOYA FINANCIAL INC has improved earnings per share by 17.9% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, VOYA FINANCIAL INC reported lower earnings of $1.71 versus $9.15 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.10 versus $1.71).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Diversified Financial Services industry average. The net income increased by 1.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $189.60 million to $191.60 million.
  • VOYA's stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 31.54%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last quarter. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp decline over the past year may have been what was needed in order to bring its value into alignment with its fundamentals and others in its industry.
