What are Wall Street analysts saying about American Campus Communities stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Campus Communities stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "American Campus Communities, Inc. is a real estate investment trust (REIT). Through ACC's controlling interest in American Campus Communities Operating Partnership L.P. (ACCOP), ACC is one of the largest owners, managers and developers of high quality student housing properties in the United States in terms of beds owned and under management. ACC is a fully integrated, self-managed and self-administered equity REIT with expertise in the acquisition, design, financing, development, construction management, leasing and management of student housing properties. " (3/21/2018)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "After a relatively drama-filled quarter of lease-up results and acquisitions, the company put up what we view as a good print, all things considered. While updated FY17 guidance ranges came in slightly below consensus (by $0.01 each), we don’t think this is the end of the world, as $0.04 of the guidance reduction came from one- time (hurricanes) or timing related (bond offering) items. Perhaps the best news of the print was the initial 2018/19 revenue growth target range, +2.5% to +4.0%, which we view as a relatively conservative and achievable range. On the external growth front, ACC added a $42 million ACE deal at University of Southern California Health Sciences campus in Los Angeles and bought its third asset at the University of Washington. We look for updated color on next year’s supply picture and capital allocation plans on the earnings call." (10/24/2017)
- 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We think this print is enough for a positive stock reaction tomorrow, but color on the call will also impact trading activity." (7/24/2017)
