TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Deckers Outdoor Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth, 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:
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, DECK's share price has jumped by 143.93%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, DECK should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- DECK's revenue growth trails the industry average of 18.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.7%. 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.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to -$158.04 million or 26.13% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -35.98%.
- 45.63% is the gross profit margin for DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 8.54% trails the industry average.
- DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP's earnings per share declined by 19.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past two years. However, we anticipate this trend to reverse over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP reported lower earnings of $3.62 versus $5.07 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.91 versus $3.62).
