- CLNY's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 16.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 94.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- CLNY's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.02 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry. The net income increased by 69.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $7.36 million to $12.47 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 721.30% to $14.57 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, COLONY FINANCIAL INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -37.43%.
- The gross profit margin for COLONY FINANCIAL INC is rather high; currently it is at 68.10%. Regardless of CLNY's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, CLNY's net profit margin of 57.10% significantly outperformed against the industry.
