Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Everest Re Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, compelling growth in net income, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 14.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $170.18 million or 22.62% when compared to the same quarter last year.
  • The net income increased by 28.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $214.55 million to $275.64 million.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization.
  • Compared to where it was trading one year ago, RE is up 32.63% to its most recent closing price of 138.23. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.
