TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates DISH Network as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Media industry. The net income increased by 99.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $175.93 million to $351.49 million.
  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 3.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $891.60 million or 39.16% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 15.24%.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 100.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 25.95% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. We feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The other strengths this company shows, however, justify the higher price levels.
  • DISH NETWORK CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. However, we anticipate underperformance relative to this pattern in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, DISH NETWORK CORP increased its bottom line by earning $2.03 versus $1.86 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 3.9% in earnings ($1.95 versus $2.03).
