The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • AFP PROVIDA SA reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, AFP PROVIDA SA increased its bottom line by earning $9.85 versus $6.87 in the prior year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Capital Markets industry. The net income increased by 146.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $67.97 million to $167.35 million.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Capital Markets industry and the overall market, AFP PROVIDA SA's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for AFP PROVIDA SA is rather high; currently it is at 65.39%. Regardless of PVD's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, PVD's net profit margin of 166.95% significantly outperformed against the industry.
  • PVD, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 6.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 4.7%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
