TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Synageva BioPharma as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • SYNAGEVA BIOPHARMA CORP has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. Earnings per share have declined over the last year. We anticipate that this should continue in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, SYNAGEVA BIOPHARMA CORP reported poor results of -$1.88 versus -$0.43 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 82.4% in earnings (-$3.43 versus -$1.88).
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Biotechnology industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 176.2% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$10.18 million to -$28.12 million.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Biotechnology industry and the overall market, SYNAGEVA BIOPHARMA CORP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to -$15.45 million or 31.30% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
  • GEVA, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 11.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 74.8%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
