TheStreet Ratings rates Cosi 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, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on COSI go as follows:

  • COSI INC's earnings per share declined by 42.9% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, COSI INC reported poor results of -$0.65 versus -$0.28 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 9.2% in earnings (-$0.71 versus -$0.65).
  • 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 69.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$2.46 million to -$4.15 million.
  • The gross profit margin for COSI INC is currently extremely low, coming in at 0.99%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -21.59% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to -$4.04 million or 37.58% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, COSI INC has marginally lower results.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 10.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 10.3%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

TheStreet Ratings rates Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L as a hold. 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 and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CCSC go as follows:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 10.8%. 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.
  • CCSC 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 3.51, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • 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, COUNTRY STYLE COOK's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for COUNTRY STYLE COOK is rather low; currently it is at 24.78%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 4.54% significantly trails the industry average.
