TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Cedar Realty as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that net income has been generally deteriorating over time.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $9.99 million or 2.42% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -65.75%.
  • 43.28% is the gross profit margin for CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, CDR's net profit margin of 4.34% significantly trails the industry average.
  • CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC 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, CEDAR REALTY TRUST INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.08 versus $0.03 in the prior year. This year, the market expects earnings to be in line with last year ($0.08 versus $0.08).
  • Looking at where the stock is today compared to one year ago, we find that it is not only higher, but it has also clearly outperformed the rise in the S&P 500 over the same period, despite the company's weak earnings results. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry, implying reduced upside potential.
  • 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 52.2% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $3.48 million to $1.66 million.
