With dozens of real estate investment trusts (REITs) earnings being released weekly during earnings season, it's never easy for investors to determine which earnings reports are the best. There are many variables to consider, such as earnings, revenue, estimates, and comparisons between the present quarter vs the same quarter one year ago.

To quickly determine which reports could lead to the most share price appreciation, investors need to assess two main things- did the company beat the consensus estimates on earnings (Earnings per share (EPS), Funds from operations (FFO), or Adjusted Funds from options (AFFO)) & revenue (aka sales), and did the company beat its previous earnings and revenue from one year ago?

If the answer to all of the above is "yes," the investor can usually expect a substantial gain in share price. But if there were some "misses" along with the "beats," the share price may see little to no gain or even a loss.

Take a look at three REITs that not only beat the street estimates on earnings and revenue this week but also topped the results reported in the same quarter one year ago:

Omega Healthcare Investors Inc OHI is a Hunt Valley, MD triple-net equity health care Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). It provides financing, capital, and triple-net leasing to 73 different operators among 880 senior housing, skilled nursing, and assisted living facilities across 42 states throughout the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Operators run these facilities and Omega Healthcare Investors has no part in the day-to-day management. Omega has approximately $10.0 billion worth of real estate investments. Texas and Indiana are the two states with the largest number of Omega facilities.

On May 2, Omega Healthcare Investors reported its first quarter 2024 operating results. AFFO of $0.68 per share beat the analyst consensus estimate of $0.66 and topped AFFO of $0.66 per share from Q1 2023.
