TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Lennox International as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, notable return on equity, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 40.78% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 36.67% 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, LII 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 greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Building Products industry average. The net income increased by 36.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $81.20 million to $110.70 million.
  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 11.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Building Products industry and the overall market, LENNOX INTERNATIONAL INC's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $72.40 million or 3.57% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, LENNOX INTERNATIONAL INC's cash flow growth rate is still lower than the industry average growth rate of 43.53%.
