TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates PTC as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins, solid stock price performance and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The gross profit margin for PTC INC is currently very high, coming in at 76.36%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, PTC's net profit margin of 1.71% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, regardless of the company's weak earnings results. 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.
  • 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 87.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $43.76 million to $5.39 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $91.99 million or 16.91% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, PTC INC has marginally lower results.
