TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Monogram Residential as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, poor profit margins and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 899.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$0.83 million to -$8.31 million.
  • The gross profit margin for MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST is currently extremely low, coming in at 11.52%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -12.35% is significantly below that of the industry average.
  • MONOGRAM RESIDENTIAL TRUST has experienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. 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 123.3% in earnings (-$0.10 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.
