5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks: EDUC, NMM, BKCC, GNI, CODI

Great Northern Iron Ore

Dividend Yield: 12.40%

Great Northern Iron Ore (NYSE: GNI) shares currently have a dividend yield of 12.40%.

Great Northern Iron Ore Properties, a conventional nonvoting trust, owns and leases mineral and non-mineral properties on the Mesabi Iron Range in northeastern Minnesota. The company has a P/E ratio of 6.12.

The average volume for Great Northern Iron Ore has been 21,500 shares per day over the past 30 days. Great Northern Iron Ore has a market cap of $108.8 million and is part of the metals & mining industry. Shares are up 7.5% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Great Northern Iron Ore as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • GNI has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. To add to this, GNI has a quick ratio of 1.65, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The gross profit margin for GREAT NORTHERN IRON ORE PPTY is currently very high, coming in at 77.70%. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, GNI's net profit margin of 77.69% significantly outperformed against the industry.
  • The revenue fell significantly faster than the industry average of 4.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 44.4%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the Metals & Mining industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has significantly decreased by 51.0% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $7.24 million to $3.55 million.
  • In its most recent trading session, GNI has closed at a price level that was not very different from its closing price of one year earlier. This is probably due to its weak earnings growth as well as other mixed factors. 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.
