The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income and poor profit margins. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 9.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.9%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- EXCEL TRUST INC has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, EXCEL TRUST INC continued to lose money by earning -$0.08 versus -$0.27 in the prior year.
- The gross profit margin for EXCEL TRUST INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.01%. Regardless of EXL's low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, EXL's net profit margin of 3.77% is significantly lower than the industry average.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 91.5% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $13.48 million to $1.15 million.
