TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Royal Philips as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including relatively poor performance when compared with the S&P 500 during the past year and unimpressive growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • PHG's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to -$332.03 million or 6.80% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS NV has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 5.08%.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.34, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.78 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the Industrial Conglomerates industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has decreased by 7.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $206.34 million to $190.12 million.
  • In its most recent trading session, PHG 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. We feel that the combination of its price rise over the last year and its current price-to-earnings ratio relative to its industry tend to reduce its upside potential.
