TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates SouFun Holdings as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • SFUN's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 21.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 30.4%. 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.
  • 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 97.7% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $60.99 million to $1.41 million.
  • The gross profit margin for SOUFUN HLDGS LTD is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.70%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 0.56% significantly trails the industry average.
