Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates TransDigm Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 0.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 28.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • TRANSDIGM GROUP INC has improved earnings per share by 26.0% 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, TRANSDIGM GROUP INC increased its bottom line by earning $7.84 versus $3.18 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($11.26 versus $7.84).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Aerospace & Defense industry. The net income increased by 25.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $110.89 million to $138.63 million.
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that the other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
  • The gross profit margin for TRANSDIGM GROUP INC is rather high; currently it is at 51.10%. Regardless of TDG's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, TDG's net profit margin of 17.39% compares favorably to the industry average.
