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

TheStreet Ratings rates Swisher Hygiene as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on SWSH go as follows:

  • 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 Commercial Services & Supplies industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 263.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$29.46 million to -$107.03 million.
  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, SWISHER HYGIENE INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 69.49%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 200.00% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
  • SWISHER HYGIENE INC 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. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, SWISHER HYGIENE INC reported poor results of -$0.85 versus -$0.46 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.25 versus -$0.85).
  • SWSH, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 5.3%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

TheStreet Ratings rates Standard Register as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on SR go as follows:

  • 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 Commercial Services & Supplies industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 247.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$2.05 million to -$7.13 million.
  • The gross profit margin for STANDARD REGISTER CO is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 31.35%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -3.11% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$1.11 million or 122.79% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • STANDARD REGISTER CO 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. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, STANDARD REGISTER CO continued to lose money by earning -$1.65 versus -$4.90 in the prior year.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, SR's share price has jumped by 64.26%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the future course of this stock, we feel that the risks involved in investing in SR do not compensate for any future upside potential, despite the fact that it has seen nice gains over the past 12 months.
