TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Universal Health Realty Income as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The stock has not only risen over the past year, it has done so at a faster pace than the S&P 500, reflecting the earnings growth and other positive factors similar to those we have cited here. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry average. The net income increased by 19.8% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $3.70 million to $4.43 million.
  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 11.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 2.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • 38.66% is the gross profit margin for UNIVERSAL HEALTH RLTY INCOME which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 25.61% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $9.09 million or 10.51% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, UNIVERSAL HEALTH RLTY INCOME's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 11.58%.
