Today's Weak On High Volume Stock: China Mobile Games And Entertainment Group (CMGE)

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Trade-Ideas LLC identified China Mobile Games and Entertainment Group ( CMGE) as a weak on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified China Mobile Games and Entertainment Group as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • CMGE has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $6.9 million.
  • CMGE has traded 111,727 shares today.
  • CMGE is trading at 5.45 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • CMGE is trading at a new low 4.45% below yesterday's close.

'Weak on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as material stock news, analyst downgrades, insider selling, selling from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and traders are piling out of a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize (or avoid losses by trimming weak positions). In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates China Mobile Games and Entertainment Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and increase in stock price during the past year. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • CMGE's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 27.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 267.8%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • CMGE has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.35, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. When compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, CHINA MOBILE GAMES -ADR's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$10.25 million or 1194.57% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
