The company has a P/E ratio of 31.4, above the average real estate industry P/E ratio of 29.6 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates National Retail as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins, solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full National Retail Ratings Report.
