Learn more. TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Cabot Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, solid stock price performance, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Chemicals industry. The net income increased by 300.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $20.00 million to $80.00 million.
- Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 13.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 9.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 272.72% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 30.90% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, CBT should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 64.70% to -$18.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CABOT CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 7.86%.
