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 Asia Entertainment & Resources 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, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on IKGH go as follows:

  • IAO KUN GROUP HOLDING CO LTD has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. Earnings per share have declined over the last two years. We anticipate that this should continue in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, IAO KUN GROUP HOLDING CO LTD reported lower earnings of $0.12 versus $1.65 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 50.0% in earnings ($0.06 versus $0.12).
  • 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 276.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $6.93 million to -$12.25 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, IAO KUN GROUP HOLDING CO LTD's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $27.46 million or 27.26% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 61.75%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 281.81% compared to the year-earlier 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.

TheStreet Ratings rates Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on DDE go as follows:

  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, DOVER DOWNS GAMING & ENTMT's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for DOVER DOWNS GAMING & ENTMT is currently extremely low, coming in at 10.61%. Regardless of DDE's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DDE's net profit margin of 1.45% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • DOVER DOWNS GAMING & ENTMT reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, DOVER DOWNS GAMING & ENTMT reported lower earnings of $0.01 versus $0.15 in the prior year.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 9.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 4.2%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing 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. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.36 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
