Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Spectrum Brands Holdings as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. 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 10.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 142.30% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 28.49% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, SPB should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Household Products industry. The net income increased by 170.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $27.80 million to $75.20 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 334.42% to $79.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, SPECTRUM BRANDS HOLDINGS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -8.70%.
  • 41.98% is the gross profit margin for SPECTRUM BRANDS HOLDINGS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, SPB's net profit margin of 6.21% significantly trails the industry average.
