Detailed Analysis

Guru Score: 0%


Determine the Classification:

According to this methodology, BKE is a "Slow Grower", based on its single digit earnings growth of 6.6566%, Based on the average of the 3, 4 and 5 year historical EPS growth rates.


SALES: [PASS]

BKE would fall into the "Dividend Payers" category according to this methodology. The first requirement of a Slow Grower is that its sales exceed one billion. BKE's sales are $1,139 million. It passes the test.


YIELD COMPARED TO THE S&P 500: [FAIL]

This methodology also maintains that the Yield of a "Slow Grower" should be high, which includes being higher than the S&P average (currently 2.15%). The yield for BKE is not available, which means this criterion cannot be analyzed.


YIELD ADJUSTED P/E/GROWTH (PEG) RATIO: [FAIL]

This methodology would consider the Yield-adjusted P/E/G ratio for BKE of 1.83, Based on the average of the 3, 4 and 5 year historical EPS growth rates, to be unacceptable. This criteria is the most important one in the methodology and a failure of it will automatically result in a 0% score for the overall analysis.


Total Debt/Equity Ratio: [PASS]

This methodology would consider the Debt/Equity ratio for BKE (%) to be wonderfully low (equity is at least ten times debt). This ratio is one quick way to determine the financial strength of the company.


FREE CASH FLOW: [NEUTRAL]

The Free Cash Flow/Price ratio, though not a requirement, is considered a bonus if it is above 35%. A positive Cash Flow (the higher the better) separates a wonderfully reliable investment from a shaky one. This methodology prefers not to invest in companies that rely heavily on capital spending. This ratio for BKE (1.93%) is too low to add to the attractiveness of the stock. Keep in mind, however, that it does not adversely affect the company as it is a bonus criteria.


NET CASH POSITION: [NEUTRAL]

Another bonus for a company is having a Net Cash/Price ratio above 30%. Lynch defines net cash as cash and marketable securities minus long term debt. According to this methodology, a high value for this ratio dramatically cuts down on the risk of the security. The Net Cash/Price ratio for BKE (7.4%) is too low to add to the attractiveness of this company. Keep in mind, however, that it does not adversely affect the company as it is a bonus criteria.
