TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Revolution Lighting Technologies as a sell. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • 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 Electrical Equipment industry and the overall market, REVOLUTION LIGHTING TECHNLGS's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • REVOLUTION LIGHTING TECHNLGS reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, REVOLUTION LIGHTING TECHNLGS reported poor results of -$0.80 versus -$0.32 in the prior year.
  • 49.29% is the gross profit margin for REVOLUTION LIGHTING TECHNLGS which we consider to be strong. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -69.78% is in-line with the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 79.82% to -$0.16 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, REVOLUTION LIGHTING TECHNLGS has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 13.80%.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the Electrical Equipment industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income increased by 10.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from -$5.73 million to -$5.14 million.
