Editor's Note: TheStreet ratings do not represent the views of TheStreet's staff or its contributors.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Michael Kors Holdings (NYSE: KORS) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a hold with a ratings score of C-. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, notable return on equity and robust revenue 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:
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 220.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 33.08% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period.
  • Compared to other companies in the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry and the overall market, MICHAEL KORS HOLDINGS LTD's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • KORS 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. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.00, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has improved to $135.49 million from having none in the same quarter last year. Since the company had no net operating cash flow for the prior period, we cannot calculate a percent change in order to compare its growth rate with that of its industry average.

Michael Kors Holdings Limited engages in the design, marketing, distribution, and retail of branded women's apparel and accessories, and men's apparel. The company sells its products primarily under the names of Michael Kors, MICHAEL KORS, MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS, and KORS MICHAEL KORS. Michael Kors has a market cap of $11.3 billion and is part of the services sector and retail industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 35.00, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 18.00. Shares are up 10% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.
