TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in net income and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 11.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 49.8%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.

The net income increased by 49.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $2.12 million to $3.17 million.
  • HANNON ARMSTRONG SUST INFR reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past year. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, HANNON ARMSTRONG SUST INFR reported lower earnings of $0.22 versus $0.46 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.22 versus $0.22).
  • The gross profit margin for HANNON ARMSTRONG SUST INFR is rather low; currently it is at 15.06%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 15.27% significantly trails the industry average.
