'Strong and Under the Radar' stocks tend to be worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and price action. Market technicians refer to such stocks as being in an accumulation phase before a mark-up and peak. Traders and hedge funds have frequently found that these types of stocks continue to build a solid price base and then ultimately spike higher and peak when others 'discover' how good the stock is performing. By leveraging the social discovery aspect of StockTwits we are highlighting stocks that don't currently receive much attention from retail investors, but we suspect may soon garner more attention.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Physicians Realty 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 return on equity has been disappointing.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • DOC's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 11.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 80.2%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • PHYSICIANS REALTY TR reported significant earnings per share improvement 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. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, PHYSICIANS REALTY TR turned its bottom line around by earning $0.14 versus -$0.19 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.25 versus $0.14).
  • 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. We feel that the combination of its price rise over the last year and its current price-to-earnings ratio relative to its industry tend to reduce its upside potential.
  • 38.76% is the gross profit margin for PHYSICIANS REALTY TR which we consider to be strong. Regardless of DOC's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DOC's net profit margin of 11.17% is significantly lower than 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. Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, PHYSICIANS REALTY TR's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
