TheStreet Ratings rates Full House Resorts as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on FLL 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • FLL'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 44.36%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last 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.
  • FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.21 versus $1.49 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 41.0% in earnings (-$0.30 versus -$0.21).
  • FLL, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 7.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 12.1%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • 47.74% is the gross profit margin for FULL HOUSE RESORTS 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 -2.32% is in-line with the industry average.
