TheStreet Ratings rates North European Oil Royalty as a buy.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • NRT, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 10.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 19.8%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The change in net income from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry average, but is less than that of the S&P 500. The net income has decreased by 20.2% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $5.59 million to $4.46 million.
  • Reflecting the weaknesses we have cited, including the decline in the company's earnings per share, NRT has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 16.04% from its price level of one year ago. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of the overall market trend could certainly make a critical difference, we do not see any strong reason stemming from the company's fundamentals that would cause a continuation of last year's decline. In fact, the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings.
  • NORTH EUROPEAN OIL RTY TR's earnings per share declined by 19.7% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern earnings per share over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, NORTH EUROPEAN OIL RTY TR reported lower earnings of $2.46 versus $2.63 in the prior year.
