Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Xerox as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 73.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $156.00 million to $271.00 million.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.78, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.01, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $878.00 million or 2.45% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -18.20%.
  • Despite the weak revenue results, XRX has outperformed against the industry average of 17.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 7.5%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
