TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

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

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 81.48% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 33.46% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, REG should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • 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 74.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $30.44 million to $53.14 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 rose by 11.4%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $68.84 million or 26.40% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 11.39%.
  • The gross profit margin for REGENCY CENTERS CORP is rather high; currently it is at 51.13%. 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 32.63% trails the industry average.
