NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- EnerNOC (Nasdaq: ENOC) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from sell to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • ENOC's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 3.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • ENOC 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, ENOC has a quick ratio of 1.99, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $8.63 million or 1.02% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 1.02%, ENERNOC INC is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -9.23%.
  • Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. Compared to other companies in the Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, ENERNOC INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
