Trade-Ideas LLC identified Zillow Group ( ZG) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Zillow Group as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • ZG has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $24.1 million.
  • ZG has traded 108,361 shares today.
  • ZG is trading at 4.76 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • ZG is trading at a new high 3.32% above yesterday's close.

'Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Zillow Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • ZG's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 21.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 83.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Although ZG's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.09 is very low, it is currently higher than that of the industry average. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 6.84, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • ZILLOW GROUP INC has improved earnings per share by 48.1% 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, ZILLOW GROUP INC reported poor results of -$2.14 versus -$1.09 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.52 versus -$2.14).
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$15.93 million or 230.97% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • 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 Internet Software & Services industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 136.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$10.90 million to -$25.72 million.
