5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks

W. P. Carey

Dividend Yield: 4.70%

W. P. Carey (NYSE: WPC) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.70%.

W. P. Carey Inc. is an independent equity real estate investment trust. The firm also provides long-term sale-leaseback and build-to-suit financing for companies. It invests in the real estate markets across the globe. The company has a P/E ratio of 54.00.

The average volume for W. P. Carey has been 273,300 shares per day over the past 30 days. W. P. Carey has a market cap of $4.7 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 31.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates W. P. Carey as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • WPC's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 16.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 181.7%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company's shares by a sharp 42.79% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, WPC should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • 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 70.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $9.09 million to $15.48 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 180.02% to $48.90 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, W P CAREY INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 38.58%.
  • The gross profit margin for W P CAREY INC is rather high; currently it is at 68.90%. Regardless of WPC's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, WPC's net profit margin of 9.32% is significantly lower than the industry average.
