STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more. Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates LifeLock as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock itself is trading at a premium valuation.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, LOCK's share price has jumped by 121.97%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame.
  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 4.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 32.8%. 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.
  • Compared to other companies in the Diversified Consumer Services industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, LIFELOCK INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the Diversified Consumer Services industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has significantly decreased by 31.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $7.87 million to $5.43 million.
