TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Express as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, solid stock price performance, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • EXPR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 11.3%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 212.50% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 38.79% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, EXPR should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Specialty Retail industry. The net income increased by 206.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $6.87 million to $21.03 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 61.46% to $58.12 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, EXPRESS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -1.83%.
