Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Alphabet as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Internet Software & Services industry average. The net income increased by 45.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $2,739.00 million to $3,979.00 million.
  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 14.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.0%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • ALPHABET INC has improved earnings per share by 35.2% 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, ALPHABET INC reported lower earnings of $25.08 versus $39.38 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($58.00 versus $25.08).
  • Net operating cash flow has remained constant at $6,007.00 million with no significant change when compared to the same quarter last year. This quarter, ALPHABET INC's cash flow growth rate has remained relatively unchanged and is slightly below the industry average.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Internet Software & Services industry and the overall market, ALPHABET INC's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
