TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Integrated Silicon Solution as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • ISSI's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.01 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. To add to this, ISSI has a quick ratio of 1.93, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, ISSI's share price has jumped by 58.02%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 10.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 4.2%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • 36.57% is the gross profit margin for INTEGRATED SILICON SOLUTION which we consider to be strong. Regardless of ISSI's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, ISSI's net profit margin of 0.01% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • INTEGRATED SILICON SOLUTION has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, INTEGRATED SILICON SOLUTION increased its bottom line by earning $0.74 versus $0.59 in the prior year.
