TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Cincinnati Financial as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 13.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • CINF's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.13 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 46.75% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 41.96% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, CINF should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Insurance industry. The net income increased by 46.9% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $128.00 million to $188.00 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $257.00 million or 19.53% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -16.35%.
