TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Tyson Foods as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • TSN's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 0.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 213.63% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 61.92% 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, TSN 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 significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Food Products industry. The net income increased by 227.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $76.00 million to $249.00 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 104.52% to $542.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, TYSON FOODS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 14.14%.
