TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Micros Systems as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- MCRS's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 8.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 10.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company's shares by a sharp 51.81% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, MCRS should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- MICROS SYSTEMS INC has improved earnings per share by 20.0% 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, MICROS SYSTEMS INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.12 versus $2.04 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.55 versus $2.12).
- Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $75.54 million or 1.85% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, MICROS SYSTEMS INC's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 10.04%.
