TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Advent Software as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income and weak operating cash flow. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- ADVS's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 1.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.7%. 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.
- The gross profit margin for ADVENT SOFTWARE INC is currently very high, coming in at 75.98%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, ADVS's net profit margin of 4.88% significantly trails the industry average.
- ADVENT SOFTWARE INC 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. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ADVENT SOFTWARE INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.93 versus $0.53 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.54 versus $0.93).
- 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 Software industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 53.6% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $10.89 million to $5.05 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $6.46 million or 68.79% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
