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 - Retail
Compare:GGP, AKR, CLP, RIOCF, BTLCY » details
Traded in other countries:WRI.Germany
Washington Real Estate Investment Trust is a self-administered, self-managed, equity real estate investment trust (REIT) successor to a trust organized in 1960. The Company's business consists of the ownership and operation of income-producing real properties in the greater Washington metro region. It owns a portfolio of office buildings, medical office buildings, industrial/flex properties, multifamily buildings and retail centers. Its geographic focus is based on two principles: (1) Real estate is a local business and is more effectively selected and managed by owners located, and with expertise, in the region. (2) Geographic markets deserving of focus must be among the nation's best markets with a strong primary industry foundation and has the capacity to withstand downturns in its primary industry. The Company considers markets to be local if they can be reached from Washington within two hours by car. While it has historically focused its investments in the greater Washington metro region, in order to maximize acquisition opportunities it would consider investments within the two-hour radius described. The Company's employees live and work in the greater Washington metro region and all but one of its officers have over 20 years of experience in this region. As of December 31, 2012, the company owned a portfolio of 70 properties, totaling approximately 8.6 million square feet of commercial space and 2,540 residential units, and land held for development. These 70 properties consist of 26 office properties, 17 medical office properties, 16 retail centers and 11 multifamily properties. Its objective is to invest in high quality properties in prime locations, then proactively manage, lease and direct ongoing capital improvement programs to improve their economic performance. The Company's properties compete for tenants with other properties throughout the respective areas in which they are located on the basis of location, quality and rental rates. Its properties are subject to various requirements, such as state and local fair housing, rent control and fire and life safety requirements.
