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 Luna Innovations as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on LUNA go as follows:

  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$1.44 million or 427.57% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Professional Services industry and the overall market, LUNA INNOVATIONS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • In its most recent trading session, LUNA has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
  • LUNA INNOVATIONS INC has improved earnings per share by 11.1% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, LUNA INNOVATIONS INC reported poor results of -$0.30 versus -$0.19 in the prior year.
  • The gross profit margin for LUNA INNOVATIONS INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 34.69%. Regardless of LUNA's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, LUNA's net profit margin of 191.00% significantly outperformed against the industry.

The net income has significantly decreased by 460.9% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.12 million to -$0.65 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.

Command Security ( MOC) was another company that pushed the Diversified Services industry higher today. Command Security was up $0.04 (2.2%) to $1.81 on light volume. Throughout the day, 5,313 shares of Command Security exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 8,700 shares.

Shares are down 14.0% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are no analysts who rate Command Security a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Command Security as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on MOC go as follows:

  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, reflecting both the market's overall trend during that period and the fact that the company's earnings growth has been robust. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals will not have much impact in either direction, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
  • 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 two years. During the past fiscal year, COMMAND SECURITY CORP increased its bottom line by earning $0.12 versus $0.04 in the prior year.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Commercial Services & Supplies industry and the overall market, COMMAND SECURITY CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for COMMAND SECURITY CORP is currently extremely low, coming in at 13.03%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -0.35% trails that of the industry average.
