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 Dynasil Corp of America as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company has favored debt over equity in the management of its balance sheet.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on DYSL go as follows:

  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. Despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year, there is currently no conclusive evidence that warrants the purchase or sale of this stock.
  • DYNASIL CORP OF AMERICA 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 two years. During the past fiscal year, DYNASIL CORP OF AMERICA turned its bottom line around by earning $0.13 versus -$0.59 in the prior year.
  • 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. Compared to other companies in the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, DYNASIL CORP OF AMERICA has outperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500.
  • 41.00% is the gross profit margin for DYNASIL CORP OF AMERICA which we consider to be strong. Regardless of DYSL's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 2.54% trails the industry average.
  • Despite currently having a low debt-to-equity ratio of 0.51, it is higher than that of the industry average, inferring that management of debt levels may need to be evaluated further. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 0.87 is weak.

TheStreet Ratings rates Cover-All Technologies as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been a generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on COVR go as follows:

  • COVR has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 16.33% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
  • 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. Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, COVER-ALL TECHNOLOGIES INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • 45.78% is the gross profit margin for COVER-ALL TECHNOLOGIES INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of COVR's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, COVR's net profit margin of 3.29% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • COVR, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 8.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.1%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • COVR's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.18 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.94 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
