TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates T-Mobile US as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, robust revenue growth and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company has favored debt over equity in the management of its balance sheet.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 2500.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 36.28% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period.
  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 15.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • 48.95% is the gross profit margin for T-MOBILE US INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, TMUS's net profit margin of 5.44% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Compared to other companies in the Wireless Telecommunication Services industry and the overall market, T-MOBILE US INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Despite the current debt-to-equity ratio of 1.58, it is still below the industry average, suggesting that this level of debt is acceptable within the Wireless Telecommunication Services industry. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 1.01 is sturdy.
