TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates RenaissanceRe Holdings as a buy. 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, increase in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 15.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 39.8%. 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.
  • Although RNR's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.21 is very low, it is currently higher than that of 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 Insurance industry. The net income increased by 10.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $73.41 million to $81.12 million.
  • 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. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $191.52 million or 12.94% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 12.94%, RENAISSANCERE HOLDINGS LTD is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -13.52%.
