TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates NextEra Energy as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • 43.47% is the gross profit margin for NEXTERA ENERGY INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 14.15% is above that of the industry average.
  • 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, despite the company's weak earnings results. 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.
  • NEXTERA ENERGY INC's earnings per share declined by 27.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, NEXTERA ENERGY INC increased its bottom line by earning $6.07 versus $5.60 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($6.20 versus $6.07).
  • NEE, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 8.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 12.4%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $1,725.00 million or 1.59% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow NEXTERA ENERGY INC is still fairing well by exceeding its industry average cash flow growth rate of -11.94%.
