Whitestone REIT

Dividend Yield: 7.30%

Whitestone REIT (NYSE: WSR) shares currently have a dividend yield of 7.30%.

No company description available.

The average volume for Whitestone REIT has been 92,800 shares per day over the past 30 days. Whitestone REIT has a market cap of $267.1 million and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 12.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Whitestone REIT as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 12.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 32.3%. 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.
  • 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 19.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $0.79 million to $0.95 million.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness 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, WHITESTONE REIT underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for WHITESTONE REIT is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.30%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 6.83% significantly trails the industry average.
