1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

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.

Compare:SLG, ARE, HIW, PKY, SIR » details
Traded in other countries:DBJ.Germany
CapLease, Inc. was incorporated in Maryland. The Company completed its initial public offering in March 2004. It is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, that invests mainly in single tenant commercial real estate assets subject to long-term leases to high credit quality tenants. It focuses on properties that are subject to a net lease, or a lease that requires the tenant to pay all or substantially all expenses normally associated with the ownership of the property, such as utilities, real estate taxes, insurance and routine maintenance. The Company also has made and expects to continue to make investments in single tenant properties where the owner has exposure to property expenses when it determines it could sufficiently underwrite that exposure and isolate a predictable cash flow. The Company has two complimentary business lines: owning single tenant properties and making first mortgage loans and other debt investments on single tenant properties. It conducts its business through a number of subsidiaries. The Company owns most of its owned properties through its predecessor and operating partnership, Caplease, LP (the 'Operating Partnership'). It is the indirect sole general partner of, and owns approximately 99.6% of the common equity of, the Operating Partnership. The Company is subject to competition in each of its business segments. It competes with specialty finance companies, insurance companies, commercial banks, investment banks, savings and loan associations, mortgage bankers, mutual funds, institutional investors, pension funds, hedge funds, other lenders, governmental bodies and individuals and other entities, including REITs.
