Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Take-Two Interactive Software as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

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 25.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 116.05% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 30.29% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, TTWO should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • TAKE-TWO INTERACTIVE SFTWR reported significant earnings per share improvement 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 year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, TAKE-TWO INTERACTIVE SFTWR continued to lose money by earning -$0.29 versus -$3.53 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.95 versus -$0.29).
  • 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 119.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$242.79 million to $46.40 million.
  • 44.47% is the gross profit margin for TAKE-TWO INTERACTIVE SFTWR which we consider to be strong. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 12.30% trails the industry average.
