SWOT Analysis

Among the strengths that ICICIdirect counts are:

-High trailing 12-month earnings per share growth.

-High Piotroski score, meaning good financial health, with high return on equity.

-Efficiency in managing assets to generate profits as return on assets is improving over the last two years.

-Profits have been increasing every quarter for the past three quarters while revenue for past two quarters.

-Strong cash generating ability from core business as cash flow from operations have improved for last two years.

-Foreign investors have been increasing their shareholding.

Recent results:

Tata Power reported growth in operating profit with an increase in operating margins year on year.

ICICIdirect lists a couple of weaknesses that include increasing debt on its books and a decline in net cash flow, which is different from cash flow from operations that has been increasing. Opportunities lie in the fact that the delivery percentage of TATAPower NSEshares being bought has been increasing, meaning most investors are buying the stock to keep in their portfolio and not just to book short term profits.

Threats include increasing non-core income and a downtrend in the share price that is most likely to cross below 200-day simple moving average.
