What are Wall Street analysts saying about Government Properties Income Trust stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Government Properties Income Trust stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Government Properties Income Trust is a real estate investment trust (REIT). The Company was formed to invest in properties that are leased to government tenants. The Company owns 29 properties, 25 of which are leased primarily to the United States Government and four of which are leased to the states of California, Maryland, Minnesota and South Carolina, respectively. The Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of HRPT Properties Trust (HRPT). " (6/5/2018)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Last week, GOV announced it would acquire First Potomac Realty Trust for approximately $1.4B, including $11.15 per FPO share and the repayment and/or assumption of FPO debt. To finance the deal, GOV also announced a 25M share equity offering. The FPO deal is expected to close by YE17 and be leverage neutral after accounting for the equity offering and the assumption/pay down of FPO debt. GOV expects the deal to be accretive post-2018. The transaction is estimated to be completed at a 7.0% cap rate, and GOV expects no impact on its current shareholder distributions (dividends), which are currently $0.43/quarter ($1.72 annualized), a 9.3% yield on Monday’s close ($18.46). In our view, the acquisition of FPO, with its Washington, D.C.-focused portfolio, is a good fit for GOV as many of the properties are leased to government agencies and/or contractors. However, the market punished GOV shares, which had traded as high as $22.89 on June 20, to a closing low of $18.31 on June 30." (7/5/2017)
