TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Sovran Self Storage as a


. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • SSS's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 8.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.3%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Although other factors naturally played a role, the company's strong earnings growth was key. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • SOVRAN SELF STORAGE INC has improved earnings per share by 27.4% 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 two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, SOVRAN SELF STORAGE INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.66 versus $2.24 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.09 versus $2.66).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average. The net income increased by 34.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $16.67 million to $22.45 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 66.37% to $30.94 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, SOVRAN SELF STORAGE INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -1.20%.
