TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Realogy Holdings as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • RLGY's revenue growth trails the industry average of 18.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.5%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • REALOGY HOLDINGS CORP has improved earnings per share by 31.3% in the most recent quarter compared to 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, REALOGY HOLDINGS CORP reported lower earnings of $0.96 versus $2.96 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.50 versus $0.96).
  • Currently the debt-to-equity ratio of 1.93 is quite high overall and when compared to the industry average, suggesting that the current management of debt levels should be re-evaluated. Along with the unfavorable debt-to-equity ratio, RLGY maintains a poor quick ratio of 0.80, which illustrates the inability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • 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. When compared to other companies in the Real Estate Management & Development industry and the overall market, REALOGY HOLDINGS CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
