TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates UDR as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth and solid stock price performance. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • UDR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 11.1%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • 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. 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.
  • UDR 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, UDR INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.27 versus $0.60 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 83.5% in earnings ($0.21 versus $1.27).
  • Net operating cash flow has declined marginally to $113.98 million or 5.78% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 5.78%, UDR INC is still significantly exceeding the industry average of -65.75%.
  • 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 79.3% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $86.86 million to $17.95 million.
