TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Cedar Realty as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, increase in net income and revenue growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, reflecting both the market's overall trend during that period and the fact that the company's earnings growth has been robust. Despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year, there is currently no conclusive evidence that warrants the purchase or sale of this stock.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry. The net income increased by 4603.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $0.12 million to $5.79 million.
  • CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.17 versus $0.05 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.19 versus -$0.17).
  • The gross profit margin for CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 32.60%. Despite the low profit margin, it has increased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 15.95% trails the industry average.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
