STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

TheStreet Ratings rates Premier Exhibitions 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 and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on PRXI go as follows:

  • PREMIER EXHIBITIONS INC's earnings have gone downhill when comparing its most recently reported quarter with the same quarter a year earlier. 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 2566.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.06 million to -$1.65 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, PREMIER EXHIBITIONS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • This stock's share value has moved by only 44.78% over the past year. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock's sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
  • 36.48% 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 -19.92% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.

Dover Motorsports ( DVD) was another company that pushed the Leisure industry higher today. Dover Motorsports was up $0.15 (6.7%) to $2.40 on average volume. Throughout the day, 10,634 shares of Dover Motorsports exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 9,500 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $2.25-$2.40 after having opened the day at $2.25 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $2.25.

Dover Motorsports, Inc., through its subsidiaries, markets and promotes motorsports entertainment in the United States. The company promotes events under the auspices of the sanctioning body in motorsports, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. Dover Motorsports has a market cap of $41.1 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 10.4% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there is 1 analyst who rates Dover Motorsports a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Dover Motorsports as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, disappointing return on equity and deteriorating net income.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on DVD go as follows:

  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.33, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.13, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • 38.02% is the gross profit margin for DOVER MOTORSPORTS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of DVD's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DVD's net profit margin of 19.95% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • DVD has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 7.35% from its price level of one year ago. Looking ahead, other than the push or pull of the broad market, we do not see anything in the company's numbers that may help reverse the decline experienced over the past 12 months. Despite the past decline, the stock is still selling for more than most others in its industry.
  • Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, DOVER MOTORSPORTS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
