Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Monmouth Real Estate Investment 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 stock has had a decline in price during the past year.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 6.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 21.3%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • MONMOUTH RE INVESTMENT CP has improved earnings per share by 33.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, MONMOUTH RE INVESTMENT CP increased its bottom line by earning $0.29 versus $0.23 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.32 versus $0.29).
  • The gross profit margin for MONMOUTH RE INVESTMENT CP is rather high; currently it is at 58.70%. Regardless of MNR's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, MNR's net profit margin of 29.58% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, MONMOUTH RE INVESTMENT CP's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • MNR is off 5.53% from its price level of one year ago, reflecting the general market trend and ignoring their higher earnings per share compared to the year-earlier quarter. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
