TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Republic Airways Holdings as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 6.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.6%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • 38.62% is the gross profit margin for REPUBLIC AIRWAYS HLDGS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of RJET's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, RJET's net profit margin of 0.85% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $23.70 million or 77.62% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
  • Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock's performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 73.15%, worse than the S&P 500's performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company's earnings per share are down 82.85% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Despite the heavy decline in its share price, this stock is still more expensive (when compared to its current earnings) than most other companies in its industry.
