4 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks Taking The Lead: AI, CPLP, CNSL, RSO

Resource Capital Corporation

Dividend Yield: 13.60%

Resource Capital Corporation (NYSE:RSO) shares currently have a dividend yield of 13.60%.

Resource Capital Corp., a specialty finance company, purchases and manages a diversified portfolio of commercial real estate-related assets and commercial finance assets in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 12.27.

The average volume for Resource Capital Corporation has been 881,300 shares per day over the past 30 days. Resource Capital Corporation has a market cap of $752.4 million and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 5.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Resource Capital Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, compelling growth in net income, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The net income increased by 30.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $18.46 million to $24.12 million.
  • Compared to where it was trading one year ago, RSO is up 1.37% to its most recent closing price of 5.89. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.
  • Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 19.4%. The declining revenue appears to have seeped down to the company's bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • 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.
  • The gross profit margin for RESOURCE CAPITAL CORP is rather high; currently it is at 55.97%. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year.
