Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates YPF Sociedad Anonima as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, attractive valuation levels and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

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 Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry. The net income increased by 35.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $179.06 million to $242.79 million.
  • Despite the weak revenue results, YPF has significantly outperformed against the industry average of 36.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.5%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $1,046.42 million or 24.48% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 24.48%, YACIMIENTOS PETE FISCALES SA is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -25.83%.
  • The gross profit margin for YACIMIENTOS PETE FISCALES SA is rather low; currently it is at 24.11%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the weak results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 5.79% is above that of the industry average.
