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

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on TRK go as follows:

  • TRK's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 4.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.0%. 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 current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.45, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels.
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period, despite 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 Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 218.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $27.20 million to -$32.22 million.
  • 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. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L ( CCSC) was another company that pushed the Leisure industry lower today. Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L was down $0.09 (1.9%) to $4.69 on light volume. Throughout the day, 285 shares of Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 16,800 shares. The stock ranged in price between $4.69-$4.77 after having opened the day at $4.77 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $4.78.

Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L has a market cap of $122.3 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 19.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L as a hold.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CCSC go as follows:

  • CCSC's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 4.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.2%. 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.
  • CCSC has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 4.18, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry and the overall market, COUNTRY STYLE COOK's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for COUNTRY STYLE COOK is rather low; currently it is at 22.66%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 2.35% significantly trails the industry average.
