Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Realty Income as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average. The net income increased by 6.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $77.79 million to $82.94 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 6.5%. 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 gross profit margin for REALTY INCOME CORP is rather high; currently it is at 54.48%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 31.45% is above that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $219.36 million or 16.92% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 3.64%.
  • REALTY INCOME CORP' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, REALTY INCOME CORP increased its bottom line by earning $1.09 versus $1.02 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.17 versus $1.09).
