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, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. 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 7.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 44.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The stock has not only risen over the past year, it has done so at a faster pace than the S&P 500, reflecting the earnings growth and other positive factors similar to those we have cited here. 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 68.25%. 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 30.23% compares favorably to the industry average.
