TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Vipshop Holdings as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • VIPS's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 7.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 136.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 175.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 437.44% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Although VIPS had significant growth over the past year, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock at the current time.
  • The gross profit margin for VIPSHOP HOLDINGS LTD -ADR is rather low; currently it is at 24.81%. Regardless of VIPS's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 3.18% trails the industry average.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.00 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Even though the debt-to-equity ratio is weak, VIPS's quick ratio is somewhat strong at 1.24, demonstrating the ability to handle short-term liquidity needs.
