5 Star CAPS Rating: LINC, By the #'s
I was twiddling with my screener and look what I found. Lincoln Educational Services Corp has a 67:0 all star outperform to all star underperform rating ratio. 5 Star CAPS rating.
By The Numbers:
PEG-0.48, P/E-5.71, P/S-0.56, P/FCF-5.57. Its P/B of 1.5 and Current ratio of 0.85 are its only low points and those aren't even too far from "correct" fundamentals. P/B of 1.5 is a good ratio, and current ratio of .85 is getting there.
Now to look at its growth: Last 5 yrs, sales grew 17.35% annually. EPS has grown 36.76% annually.
Management Effectiveness: Return on Investments and Return on Assets are both up 10% from their 5 year average. ROI:23.21%, ROE: 28.01%, ROA: 17.27%
Beta-0.75, less volatile than the market.
According to the Fool's Perfect Stock Criteria: 7 out of 10, missing current ratio, dividend growth, and net profit margin. Its margin and current ratio are close enough to ideal not to worry about them. Its dividend was initiated 2 quarters ago, so you can't really tell, although it does support a nice and low payout ratio. Dividend Yield: 6.9%
Looking like a winner.
