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 UniTek Global Services as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on UNTK 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 Construction & Engineering industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 156.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$7.66 million to -$19.63 million.
  • The gross profit margin for UNITEK GLOBAL SERVICES INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 14.98%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -22.15% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$2.32 million or 135.15% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 70.75%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 175.67% 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.
  • UNITEK GLOBAL SERVICES 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 year. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, UNITEK GLOBAL SERVICES INC reported poor results of -$2.65 versus -$2.28 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.99 versus -$2.65).

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 Command Security as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and increase in stock price during the past year. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on MOC go as follows:

  • MOC's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 3.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.50, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.46, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • COMMAND SECURITY CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. During the past fiscal year, COMMAND SECURITY CORP increased its bottom line by earning $0.04 versus $0.01 in the prior year.
  • The gross profit margin for COMMAND SECURITY CORP is currently extremely low, coming in at 14.22%. Regardless of MOC's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 1.43% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $0.34 million or 78.45% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.

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

Learning Tree International ( LTRE) was another company that pushed the Diversified Services industry higher today. Learning Tree International was up $0.04 (1.5%) to $2.69 on light volume. Throughout the day, 1,014 shares of Learning Tree International exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,700 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $2.58-$2.69 after having opened the day at $2.69 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $2.65.

Learning Tree International, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, develops, markets, and delivers a library of instructor-led classroom courses to meet the professional development needs of information technology (IT) professionals and managers worldwide. Learning Tree International has a market cap of $37.8 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 15.6% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are no analysts who rate Learning Tree International a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Learning Tree International as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on LTRE 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 Diversified Consumer Services industry. The net income has decreased by 14.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from -$4.02 million to -$4.60 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$4.36 million or 87.65% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • Reflecting the weaknesses we have cited, including the decline in the company's earnings per share, LTRE has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 6.27% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Diversified Consumer Services industry and the overall market, LEARNING TREE INTL INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • 42.87% is the gross profit margin for LEARNING TREE INTL INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of LTRE's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, LTRE's net profit margin of -18.40% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
