TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates FireEye as a

sell

. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been the company's poor growth in earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • FIREEYE INC's earnings per share declined by 15.8% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past year. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, FIREEYE INC reported poor results of -$3.13 versus -$0.45 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$1.80 versus -$3.13).
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the Software industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has significantly decreased by 32.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$101.21 million to -$133.96 million.
  • Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, FIREEYE INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for FIREEYE INC is currently very high, coming in at 79.68%. Regardless of FEYE's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year.
