TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Brandywine Realty as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • BDN's revenue growth trails the industry average of 13.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 1.6%. 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.
  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, regardless of the company's weak earnings results. 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 gross profit margin for BRANDYWINE REALTY TRUST is rather low; currently it is at 21.05%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 5.98% significantly trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $42.76 million or 13.50% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
