TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Organovo Holdings as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$5.40 million or 172.86% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • ONVO has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 12.09% 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.
  • ONVO, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 26.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 67.0%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • Compared to other companies in the Biotechnology industry and the overall market, ORGANOVO HOLDINGS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • ONVO's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.00 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 25.44, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
