5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks

Liberty Property

Dividend Yield: 4.80%

Liberty Property (NYSE:LRY) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.80%.

Liberty Property Trust is a publicly owned real estate investment holding trust. Through its subsidiary, it provides leasing, property management, development, acquisition, and other tenant-related services for a portfolio of industrial and office properties. The company has a P/E ratio of 37.35. Currently there are 3 analysts that rate Liberty Property a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 6 rate it a hold.

The average volume for Liberty Property has been 926,200 shares per day over the past 30 days. Liberty Property has a market cap of $4.7 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 9.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Liberty Property as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, increase in net income, revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average. The net income increased by 10.4% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $34.79 million to $38.43 million.
  • LRY's revenue growth trails the industry average of 16.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.1%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • LIBERTY PROPERTY TRUST's earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, LIBERTY PROPERTY TRUST increased its bottom line by earning $1.05 versus $0.99 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.10 versus $1.05).
