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 Bona Film Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and generally higher debt management risk.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on BONA go as follows:

  • BONA's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 8.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 185.8%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • BONA FILM GROUP LTD -ADR reported significant earnings per share improvement 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 year. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, BONA FILM GROUP LTD -ADR turned its bottom line around by earning $0.10 versus -$0.02 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.28 versus $0.10).
  • 42.23% is the gross profit margin for BONA FILM GROUP LTD -ADR 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, the net profit margin of 5.86% trails the industry average.
  • Even though the current debt-to-equity ratio is 1.17, it is still below the industry average, suggesting that this level of debt is acceptable within the Media industry. Despite the fact that BONA's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 0.68 is low and demonstrates weak liquidity.
  • In its most recent trading session, BONA has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. 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.

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 Saga Communications as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on SGA go as follows:

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 8.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.4%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.35, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.68, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $9.16 million or 8.73% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, SAGA COMMUNICATIONS's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 17.49%.
  • SAGA COMMUNICATIONS's earnings per share declined by 25.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, SAGA COMMUNICATIONS reported lower earnings of $2.62 versus $3.18 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.76 versus $2.62).

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

Radio One ( ROIA) was another company that pushed the Media industry higher today. Radio One was up $0.06 (3.3%) to $1.88 on light volume. Throughout the day, 309 shares of Radio One exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3,900 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $1.80-$1.88 after having opened the day at $1.80 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $1.82.

Radio One, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, operates as an urban-oriented multi-media company in the United States. The company operates through four segments: Radio Broadcasting, Reach Media, Internet, and Cable Television. Radio One has a market cap of $4.0 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are up 10.9% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are no analysts who rate Radio One a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Radio One as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and generally high debt management risk.

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.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $5.14 million or 70.74% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 25.19 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 2.66, which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • 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 61.76%, which is also worse than the performance of the S&P 500 Index. 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 company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Media industry average. The net income increased by 0.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from -$13.22 million to -$13.22 million.
