Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates ARRIS Group as a

buy

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

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • ARRS's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 0.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 234.0%. 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 Communications Equipment industry. The net income increased by 378.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$14.65 million to $40.80 million.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 315.38% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 120.00% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. We feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The other strengths this company shows, however, justify the higher price levels.
  • ARRIS GROUP INC reported significant earnings per share improvement 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, ARRIS GROUP INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.38 versus $0.46 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.55 versus -$0.38).
  • The debt-to-equity ratio of 1.27 is relatively high when compared with the industry average, suggesting a need for better debt level management. Even though the debt-to-equity ratio is weak, ARRS's quick ratio is somewhat strong at 1.17, demonstrating the ability to handle short-term liquidity needs.
