TheStreetRatings.com Analysis: TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Monogram Residential as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been poor profit margins. Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The gross profit margin for MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST is rather low; currently it is at 15.00%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -9.08% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed compared to the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average, but is greater than that of the S&P 500. The net income increased by 3.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from -$6.15 million to -$5.94 million.
  • MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. We feel it is likely to report a decline in earnings in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST turned its bottom line around by earning $0.43 versus -$0.04 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 115.1% in earnings (-$0.07 versus $0.43).
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is higher, and it has outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period, despite the company's weak earnings results. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
  • When compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST's return on equity is below that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
