TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Tiffany as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its 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 disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.38, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. To add to this, TIF has a quick ratio of 1.50, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The gross profit margin for TIFFANY & CO is rather high; currently it is at 67.38%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 13.44% is above that of the industry average.
  • TIF, with its decline in revenue, underperformed when compared the industry average of 13.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 5.6%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $386.10 million or 11.71% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Specialty Retail industry average. The net income has decreased by 16.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $196.18 million to $163.20 million.
