Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates RealPage as a hold. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company’s net income has been quite unimpressive. Highlights from the ratings report include: The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 1.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 16.2%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company’s bottom line, improving the earnings per share. Powered by its strong earnings growth of 300.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 32.03% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock’s future course, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock despite its gains in the past year. The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.38, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 1.00 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems. The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, REALPAGE INC’s return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500. The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed compared to the Software industry average, but is greater than that of the S&P 500. The net income increased by 286.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$1.61 million to $3.00 million.
