Government Properties Income Trust Stock Downgraded (GOV)
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 17.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 28.6%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.50, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels.
- GOV has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 18.51% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
- The gross profit margin for GOVERNMENT PPTYS INCOME TR is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 33.90%. Regardless of GOV's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, GOV's net profit margin of 25.90% is significantly lower than the same period one year prior.
