'Strong and Under the Radar' stocks tend to be worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and price action. Market technicians refer to such stocks as being in an accumulation phase before a mark-up and peak. Traders and hedge funds have frequently found that these types of stocks continue to build a solid price base and then ultimately spike higher and peak when others 'discover' how good the stock is performing.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Kite Realty Group as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • 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 47.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $7.23 million to $10.69 million.
  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 7.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.1%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displaying stagnant earnings per share.
  • KITE REALTY GROUP TRUST 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, KITE REALTY GROUP TRUST turned its bottom line around by earning $0.18 versus -$0.30 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 77.8% in earnings ($0.04 versus $0.18).
  • The gross profit margin for KITE REALTY GROUP TRUST is rather low; currently it is at 22.46%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 11.96% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $31.52 million or 0.30% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, KITE REALTY GROUP TRUST has marginally lower results.
