TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Incyte as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its poor profit margins and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The gross profit margin for INCYTE CORP is rather low; currently it is at 24.95%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year.
  • INCYTE CORP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, INCYTE CORP continued to lose money by earning -$0.36 versus -$1.48 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 2.8% in earnings (-$0.37 versus -$0.36).
  • The net income has significantly decreased by 163.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $4.04 million to -$2.57 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $8.08 million or 7.37% when compared to the same quarter last year.
  • Compared to its price level of one year ago, INCY is up 105.00% to its most recent closing price of 37.25. Looking ahead, however, our view is that this stock's fundamentals could hold back its rise or even push it down.
