Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Trinet Group as a

sell

. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, generally high debt management risk, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • TNET's stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 63.98%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last quarter. Although its share price is down sharply from a year ago, do not assume that it can now be tagged as cheap and attractive. The reality is that, based on its current price in relation to its earnings, TNET is still more expensive than most of the other companies in its industry.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 61.84 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company.
  • The gross profit margin for TRINET GROUP INC is rather low; currently it is at 15.14%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 1.94% trails that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $26.08 million or 52.46% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • TRINET GROUP INC 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, TRINET GROUP INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.44 versus $0.21 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.22 versus $0.44).
