Tri-Tech Holding Inc. Stock Upgraded (TRIT)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Tri-Tech (Nasdaq: TRIT) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from sell to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, 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 weak operating cash flow, poor profit margins and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 15.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 42.2%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • TRIT's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.10 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.82 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • The gross profit margin for TRI-TECH HOLDING INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.30%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the weak results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 8.10% is above that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$4.31 million or 4741.57% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
