TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Jarden Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • JAH's revenue growth trails the industry average of 23.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.0%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • JARDEN CORP' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, JARDEN CORP increased its bottom line by earning $2.09 versus $1.54 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.54 versus $2.09).
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, JAH's share price has jumped by 32.12%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $164.80 million or 1.43% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 1.43%, JARDEN CORP is still significantly exceeding the industry average of -470.57%.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.44 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Even though the debt-to-equity ratio is weak, JAH's quick ratio is somewhat strong at 1.11, demonstrating the ability to handle short-term liquidity needs.
