Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates LifeLock as a

sell

. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been an overall disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Diversified Consumer Services industry and the overall market, LIFELOCK INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $34.37 million or 24.08% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 24.08%, LIFELOCK INC is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 274.75%.
  • Compared to where it was trading one year ago, LOCK is down 38.84% to its most recent closing price of 9.42. Looking ahead, our view is that this stock still does not have good upside potential and may even suffer further declines.
  • LIFELOCK 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, LIFELOCK INC reported lower earnings of $0.02 versus $0.55 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.60 versus $0.02).
  • The gross profit margin for LIFELOCK INC is currently very high, coming in at 77.62%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 0.35% trails the industry average.
