Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Juniper Networks as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, increase in net income, notable return on equity and reasonable valuation levels. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • JNPR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 1.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • JUNIPER NETWORKS INC has improved earnings per share by 21.1% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, JUNIPER NETWORKS INC turned its bottom line around by earning $1.61 versus -$0.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.01 versus $1.61).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and greatly outperformed compared to the Communications Equipment industry average. The net income increased by 14.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $80.20 million to $91.40 million.
  • 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 Communications Equipment industry and the overall market, JUNIPER NETWORKS INC's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
