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 fully integrated, self-managed and self-administered equity REIT with expertise in the acquisition, design, finance, development, construction management, leasing and management of student housing properties. " (10/30/2017)
- 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)

American Campus Communities (NYSE:ACC) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
