Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Marvell Technology Group as a

hold

. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • MRVL, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 11.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 26.0%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • MARVELL TECHNOLOGY GROUP LTD has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, MARVELL TECHNOLOGY GROUP LTD increased its bottom line by earning $0.84 versus $0.64 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 35.7% in earnings ($0.54 versus $0.84).
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 35.75%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 374.07% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 375.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $138.87 million to -$382.43 million.
