. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been poor profit margins.
Highlights from the ratings report include:
- The gross profit margin for BRIXMOR PROPERTY GROUP INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 32.64%. Regardless of BRX's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, BRX's net profit margin of 8.80% is significantly lower than the industry average.
- Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, BRIXMOR PROPERTY GROUP INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
- Net operating cash flow has improved to $153.65 million from having none in the same quarter last year. Since the company had no net operating cash flow for the prior period, we cannot calculate a percent change in order to compare its growth rate with that of its industry average.
- Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is higher, and it has outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period. Regardless of the rise in share value over the previous year, we feel that the risks involved in investing in this stock do not compensate for any future upside potential.
- BRIXMOR PROPERTY GROUP INC 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 ($0.36 versus -$0.14).
