Maxus Realty Trust Inc.

Maxus Realty Trust Inc. is a NASDAQ listed security that has been trading in a range between $10.27 and $18.00 over the past year. With 1,402,400 shares outstanding, a recent price of $11.75 gives a total market capitalization of $16,478,200. While there are certainly larger companies, Maxus Realty Trust Inc. has definitely earned its place in the pack. Last year, Maxus Realty Trust Inc. created $1.23 in earnings for every share outstanding.

Maxus Realty Trust Inc. is currently priced by the market at 0.00 times last year’s earnings. Many trading multiples around the world are quite attractive these days, but don’t be fooled. A Price to Earnings ratio of 0 simply means that the security didn’t make any money last year.

With a share price under $50 a share and earnings per share in excess of $1 a share, Maxus Realty Trust Inc. is unlikely to be an interesting value proposition. Consistent earnings are the key to high valuations and this security is well on its way.
