4 Hold-Rated Dividend Stocks

Northstar Realty Finance Corporation

Dividend Yield: 7.60%

Northstar Realty Finance Corporation (NYSE: NRF) shares currently have a dividend yield of 7.60%.

NorthStar Realty Finance Corp., a real estate investment trust (REIT), operates as a commercial real estate (CRE) investment and asset management company in the United States. Currently there are 3 analysts that rate Northstar Realty Finance Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

The average volume for Northstar Realty Finance Corporation has been 3,505,800 shares per day over the past 30 days. Northstar Realty Finance Corporation has a market cap of $1.6 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 34.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Northstar Realty Finance Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • NRF's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 16.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 51.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 75.29% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 78.71% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock despite its gains in the past year.
  • The gross profit margin for NORTHSTAR REALTY FINANCE CP is rather high; currently it is at 68.30%. It has increased significantly from the same period last year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -9.47% is in-line with the industry average.
  • Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, NORTHSTAR REALTY FINANCE CP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $14.68 million or 41.36% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
