TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Cadence Design Systems as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- CDNS's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 6.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.3%. 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.
- 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 Software industry and the overall market, CADENCE DESIGN SYSTEMS INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $98.21 million or 6.83% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -6.40%.
- The gross profit margin for CADENCE DESIGN SYSTEMS INC is currently very high, coming in at 92.04%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, CDNS's net profit margin of 10.50% significantly trails the industry average.
