TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Bona Film Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance 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:
  • Compared to its price level of one year ago, BONA is up 82.12% to its most recent closing price of 13.55. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals should not have much impact in either direction, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
  • The gross profit margin for BONA FILM GROUP LTD -ADR is rather high; currently it is at 51.26%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, BONA's net profit margin of 0.97% significantly trails the industry average.
  • BONA, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 7.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 21.1%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Currently the debt-to-equity ratio of 1.80 is quite high overall and when compared to the industry average, suggesting that the current management of debt levels should be re-evaluated. To add to this, BONA has a quick ratio of 0.59, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Media industry and the overall market, BONA FILM GROUP LTD -ADR's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
