Terreno Realty Corporation Stock Upgraded (TRNO)
- TRNO's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 11.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 65.2%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, TRNO's share price has jumped by 38.79%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. 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.
- TERRENO REALTY 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. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TERRENO REALTY CORP continued to lose money by earning -$0.19 versus -$0.52 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.04 versus -$0.19).
- The gross profit margin for TERRENO REALTY CORP is currently extremely low, coming in at 12.90%. Regardless of TRNO's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, TRNO's net profit margin of 41.11% significantly outperformed against the industry.
- The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, TERRENO REALTY CORP underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
