TheStreet Ratings rates MTR Gaming Group as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally high debt management risk.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on MNTG go as follows:

  • MTR GAMING GROUP 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 suffered a declining pattern earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, MTR GAMING GROUP INC reported poor results of -$0.33 versus -$0.20 in the prior year.
  • 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 690.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.79 million to -$6.21 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. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, MTR GAMING GROUP INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to -$11.63 million or 10.54% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 10.54%, MTR GAMING GROUP INC is still significantly exceeding the industry average of -80.10%.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 3655.97 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Regardless of the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, MNTG has managed to keep a strong quick ratio of 2.01, which demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on PRXI go as follows:

  • PREMIER EXHIBITIONS 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 suffered a declining pattern earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, PREMIER EXHIBITIONS INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.01 versus $0.03 in the prior year.
  • 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 224.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $0.97 million to -$1.21 million.

Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, PREMIER EXHIBITIONS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 61.37%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 200.00% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.
  • 41.17% is the gross profit margin for PREMIER EXHIBITIONS INC which we consider to be strong. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, PRXI's net profit margin of -16.17% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
