3 Stocks Boosting The Real Estate Industry Higher

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

All three major indices traded up today with the Dow Jones Industrial Average ( ^DJI) trading up 12 points (0.1%) at 16,545 as of Thursday, May 22, 2014, 3:55 PM ET. The NYSE advances/declines ratio sits at 2,121 issues advancing vs. 844 declining with 178 unchanged.

The Real Estate industry as a whole closed the day up 0.2% versus the S&P 500, which was up 0.3%. Top gainers within the Real Estate industry included Wheeler Real Estate Investment ( WHLR), up 3.4%, Trade Street Residential ( TSRE), up 3.0%, Farmland Partners ( FPI), up 1.9%, One Liberty Properties ( OLP), up 1.6% and BBX Capital ( BBX), up 3.2%.

TheStreet Ratings Group would like to highlight 3 stocks pushing the industry higher today:

One Liberty Properties ( OLP) is one of the companies that pushed the Real Estate industry higher today. One Liberty Properties was up $0.33 (1.6%) to $21.57 on light volume. Throughout the day, 11,899 shares of One Liberty Properties exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 31,600 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $21.27-$21.65 after having opened the day at $21.35 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $21.24.

STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

TheStreet Ratings rates One Liberty Properties as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on OLP go as follows:

  • OLP's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 18.6%. 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.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $7.25 million or 10.75% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, ONE LIBERTY PROPERTIES INC's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 18.83%.
  • The gross profit margin for ONE LIBERTY PROPERTIES INC is rather high; currently it is at 51.42%. Regardless of OLP's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, OLP's net profit margin of 22.50% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • ONE LIBERTY PROPERTIES INC' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ONE LIBERTY PROPERTIES INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.09 versus $0.80 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 13.8% in earnings ($0.94 versus $1.09).
