TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates BankUnited as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. 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 premium valuation. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- BKU's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 0.8%. 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.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 250.91% to $28.13 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, BANKUNITED INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -37.15%.
- The gross profit margin for BANKUNITED INC is currently very high, coming in at 83.24%. Regardless of BKU's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 20.86% trails the industry average.
- BANKUNITED INC's earnings per share declined by 17.0% 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, BANKUNITED INC reported lower earnings of $1.95 versus $2.01 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 2.8% in earnings ($1.90 versus $1.95).
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Commercial Banks industry average. The net income has decreased by 15.9% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $55.27 million to $46.46 million.
