TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Del Frisco's Restaurant Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.5%. 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.
- DFRG has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign.
- 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. In comparison to the other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, DEL FRISCOS RESTURNT GRP LLC's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
- The gross profit margin for DEL FRISCOS RESTURNT GRP LLC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.95%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 4.71% trails that of the industry average.
