GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: REITs » REIT - Residential
Compare:PPS, EQR, AGNC, AIV, UDR » details
Traded in other countries:WV8.Germany
AvalonBay Communities Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of California in 1978. In 1995, the Company reincorporated in the State of Maryland and has been focused on the ownership and operation of apartment communities since that time. The Company is a Maryland corporation that has elected to be treated as a real estate investment trust for federal income tax purposes. The Company is engaged in the development, redevelopment, acquisition, ownership and operation of multifamily communities in high barrier-to-entry markets of the United States. These barriers-to-entry include a difficult and lengthy entitlement process with local jurisdictions and dense urban or suburban areas where zoned and entitled land is in limited supply. The Company's markets are located in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Pacific Northwest, and Northern and Southern California regions of the United States. The Company's real estate investments consist of the following reportable segments: Established Communities, Other Stabilized Communities and Development/Redevelopment Communities. Established Communities are operating communities that are consolidated for financial reporting purposes and that were owned and had stabilized occupancy and operating expenses as of the beginning of the prior year. Other Stabilized Communities are all other operating communities that have stabilized occupancy and operating expenses as of the beginning of the current year, but that had not achieved stabilization as of the beginning of the prior year. Development/ Redevelopment Communities consist of communities that are under construction, communities where redevelopment is in progress or is planned to begin during the current year and communities under lease-up. The Company faces competition from other real estate investors, including insurance companies, pension and investment funds, partnerships and investment companies and other REITs, to acquire and develop apartment communities and acquire land for future development. The Company also competes against condominiums and single-family homes that are for sale or rent.
