TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Noah Holdings as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 4.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 31.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • 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. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. 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.
  • NOAH HOLDINGS LTD -ADR has improved earnings per share by 28.1% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago.

During the past fiscal year, NOAH HOLDINGS LTD -ADR increased its bottom line by earning $1.29 versus $0.93 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.64 versus $1.29).
