Detailed Analysis

Guru Score: 0%


Determine the Classification:

According to this methodology, SPN is a "Slow Grower", based on its single digit earnings growth of 5.265%, Based on the average of the 3 and 4 year historical EPS growth rates.


SALES: [PASS]

SPN 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. SPN's sales are $4,557 million. It passes the test.


Inventory To Sales: [PASS]

When inventories increase faster than sales, it is a red flag. However an increase of up to 5% is considered bearable if all other ratios appear attractive. Inventory to sales for SPN was 3.74% last year, while for this year it is 4.07%. Since inventory has been rising, this methodology would not look favorably at the stock but would not completely eliminate it from consideration as the inventory increase (.32%) is below 5%.


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 2.18%). The yield for SPN 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 SPN of 1.82, Based on the average of the 3 and 4 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 SPN (40.41%) to be normal (equity is approximately twice debt).
