Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates STORE Capital as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 6.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 46.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • STORE CAPITAL CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.67 versus $0.25).
  • Compared to where it was trading a year ago, STOR's share price has not changed very much due to (a) the relatively weak year-over-year performance of the overall market, (b) the company's stagnant earnings, and (c) other mixed results. Looking ahead, our view is that this company's fundamentals will not have much impact in either direction, allowing the stock to generally move up or down based on the push and pull of the broad market.
  • When compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, STORE CAPITAL CORP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for STORE CAPITAL CORP is rather high; currently it is at 68.26%. Regardless of STOR's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, STOR's net profit margin of 30.74% compares favorably to the industry average.
