TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Grupo Televisa SAB as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • TV's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 11.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.2%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Media industry average. The net income increased by 25.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $135.98 million to $170.96 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 71.89% to $421.36 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, GRUPO TELEVISA SAB has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 13.29%.
  • The gross profit margin for GRUPO TELEVISA SAB is rather high; currently it is at 60.16%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 11.39% trails the industry average.
  • Even though the current debt-to-equity ratio is 1.09, it is still below the industry average, suggesting that this level of debt is acceptable within the Media industry. Despite the fact that TV's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 1.51 is high and demonstrates strong liquidity.
