Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on ROIA go as follows:

  • 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 Media industry and the overall market, RADIO ONE INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • ROIA's stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 26.42%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last quarter. 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.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 19.00 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. Despite the company's weak debt-to-equity ratio, the company has managed to keep a very strong quick ratio of 2.63, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • ROIA, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 9.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 9.3%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • The gross profit margin for RADIO ONE INC is rather high; currently it is at 68.71%. Regardless of ROIA's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, ROIA's net profit margin of -9.97% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
