TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Five Below as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, notable return on equity and robust revenue growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including premium valuation and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 250.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 40.61% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period.
  • When compared to other companies in the Specialty Retail industry and the overall market, FIVE BELOW INC's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
  • FIVE's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.24 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.42 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
  • The gross profit margin for FIVE BELOW INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 33.65%. Regardless of FIVE's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 3.47% trails the industry average.
