5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks

CreXus Investment

Dividend Yield: 7.70%

CreXus Investment (NYSE: CXS) shares currently have a dividend yield of 7.70%.

CreXus Investment Corp., together with its subsidiaries, operates as a commercial real estate company. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.33.

The average volume for CreXus Investment has been 1,135,600 shares per day over the past 30 days. CreXus Investment has a market cap of $998.5 million and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 6.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates CreXus Investment as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, CXS's share price has jumped by 26.25%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, CXS should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 93.99% to $18.23 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CREXUS INVESTMENT CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 38.55%.
  • The gross profit margin for CREXUS INVESTMENT CORP is currently very high, coming in at 74.50%. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, CXS's net profit margin of 84.39% significantly outperformed against the industry.
  • CREXUS INVESTMENT CORP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CREXUS INVESTMENT CORP reported lower earnings of $0.85 versus $1.59 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.00 versus $0.85).
  • CXS, with its very weak revenue results, has greatly underperformed against the industry average of 16.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 54.7%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
