TheStreet Ratings rates LG Display as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations 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 TheStreet Ratings analysis on LPL go as follows:

  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 36.36% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 34.67% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, LPL should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • LG DISPLAY CO LTD has improved earnings per share by 36.4% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, LG DISPLAY CO LTD increased its bottom line by earning $0.56 versus $0.31 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.28 versus $0.56).
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $669.49 million or 17.55% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, LG DISPLAY CO LTD's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 27.53%.
  • LPL, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 0.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 16.4%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
