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 Luna Innovations as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been unimpressive growth in net income over time.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on LUNA go as follows:

  • 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 Professional Services industry. The net income has decreased by 21.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from -$0.62 million to -$0.74 million.
  • In its most recent trading session, LUNA 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. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past 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 Professional Services industry and the overall market, LUNA INNOVATIONS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • LUNA INNOVATIONS INC has improved earnings per share by 40.0% 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, LUNA INNOVATIONS INC reported poor results of -$0.33 versus -$0.19 in the prior year.
  • 38.80% is the gross profit margin for LUNA INNOVATIONS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -13.85% is in-line with the industry average.
