Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Intuit as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, increase in net income, expanding profit margins and growth in earnings per share. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 9.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 23.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, INTUIT INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Software industry. The net income increased by 136.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$66.00 million to $24.00 million.
  • The gross profit margin for INTUIT INC is currently very high, coming in at 84.62%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, INTU's net profit margin of 2.60% significantly trails the industry average.
  • INTUIT 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, INTUIT INC reported lower earnings of $1.47 versus $2.96 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.50 versus $1.47).
