Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Gramercy Property as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and increase in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's earnings per share has not been good.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • GPT's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 10.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 152.6%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, GPT's share price has jumped by 37.04%, 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.
  • GRAMERCY PROPERTY TRUST INC reported flat earnings per share in the most recent 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, GRAMERCY PROPERTY TRUST INC turned its bottom line around by earning $0.51 versus -$0.25 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 94.1% in earnings ($0.03 versus $0.51).
  • The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average. The net income increased by 6.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from -$5.95 million to -$5.59 million.
  • The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. When compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, GRAMERCY PROPERTY TRUST INC's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
