STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12-months. Learn more. Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates PHH Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company has favored debt over equity in the management of its balance sheet.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 511.76% to $416.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year.
  • 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.
  • The gross profit margin for PHH CORP is rather high; currently it is at 58.87%. Regardless of PHH's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year.
  • Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.7%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • Although PHH's debt-to-equity ratio of 3.80 is very high, it is currently less than that of the industry average.
