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

Business Description

Industry: REITs » REIT - Residential
Compare:PPS, EQR, AVB, AGNC, AIV » details
Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc. is a Maryland corporation formed in December 1992. The Company is a fully integrated owner and operator of lifestyle-oriented properties. The Company leases individual developed areas with access to utilities for placement of factory built homes, cottages, cabins or recreational vehicles. Customers might lease individual sites or purchase right-to-use contracts providing the customer access to specific properties for limited stays. As of December 31, 2011, the Company owned or had an ownership interest in a portfolio of 382 Properties located throughout the United States and Canada consisting of 141,132 residential sites. The operations of the Company are conducted mainly through the Operating Partnership. The Company contributed the proceeds from its initial public offering and subsequent offerings to the Operating Partnership for a general partnership interest. In 2004, the general partnership interest was contributed to MHC Trust, a private REIT subsidiary owned by the Company. Several Properties are wholly owned by taxable REIT subsidiaries of the Company. In addition, Realty Systems, Inc. is a wholly owned taxable REIT subsidiary of the Company that is engaged in the business of purchasing and selling or leasing site set homes that are located in Properties owned and managed by the Company. RSI also provides brokerage services to residents at such Properties for those residents who move from a Property but do not relocate their homes. RSI might provide brokerage services, in competition with other local brokers, by seeking buyers for the site set homes. Subsidiaries of RSI also lease from the Operating Partnership certain real property within or adjacent to certain Properties consisting of golf courses, pro shops, stores and restaurants. Several of the Company's Properties have available land for expanding the number of sites available to be utilized by its customers. Development of these sites is evaluated based on the following: local market conditions; ability to subdivide; accessibility through the Property or externally; infrastructure needs including utility needs and access as well as additional common area amenities; zoning and entitlement; costs; topography; and ability to market new sites. The Company is subject to various laws, ordinances and regulations, including regulations relating to recreational facilities such as swimming pools, clubhouses and other common areas, regulations relating to providing utility services — such as electricity — to its customers, and regulations relating to operating water and wastewater treatment facilities at certain of its properties.
