TheStreet Ratings rates Full House Resorts as a sell. The area that we feel has been the company's primary weakness has been its declining revenues.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on FLL go as follows:

  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.9%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC reported significant earnings per share improvement 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, FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC reported poor results of -$1.11 versus -$0.21 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.13 versus -$1.11).
  • 44.32% is the gross profit margin for FULL HOUSE RESORTS INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -1.38% is in-line with the industry average.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income increased by 95.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$8.49 million to -$0.43 million.
  • This stock has increased by 50.51% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the future course of this stock, we feel that the risks involved in investing in FLL do not compensate for any future upside potential, despite the fact that it has seen nice gains over the past 12 months.

Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L ( CCSC) was another company that pushed the Leisure industry higher today. Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L was up $0.17 (3.6%) to $4.88 on average volume. Throughout the day, 21,620 shares of Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 16,400 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $4.69-$4.92 after having opened the day at $4.70 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $4.71.

Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co., Ltd. operates a quick service restaurant chain in the People's Republic of China. The company specializes in serving Sichuan-style fast food over the counter. As of March 31, 2015, it owned and operated 344 restaurants. Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L has a market cap of $118.3 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 20.4% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are no analysts who rate Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain Co L 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 reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on CCSC go as follows:

  • CCSC's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 3.8%. 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 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.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $4.05 million or 36.77% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
