Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Weibo as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock itself is trading at a premium valuation.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • WB's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 20.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 23.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • WB has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. To add to this, WB has a quick ratio of 2.18, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The gross profit margin for WEIBO CORP -ADR is currently very high, coming in at 72.27%. Regardless of WB's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, WB's net profit margin of 5.95% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. When compared to other companies in the Internet Software & Services industry and the overall market, WEIBO CORP -ADR's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
