What are Wall Street analysts saying about Preferred Apartment Communities stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Preferred Apartment Communities stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. is a real estate investment trust. The company acquire and operate multifamily properties primarily in the United States. It also acquire senior mortgage loans, subordinate loans or mezzanine debt secured by interests in multifamily properties, membership or partnership interests in multifamily properties and other multifamily assets. Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. is based in Atlanta, United States. " (7/25/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We are at the bottom end of the range, and our estimate assumes that acquisition activity picks up meaningfully over the balance of the year. In 2018, APTS acquired $1.2 billion of assets, and 2019 looks to fall well short of that measure, at an estimated $915 million. We believe the problem lies in APTS cost of capital under its preferred issuance program, and the pressure on cap rates in multifamily, grocery- anchored retail, and class A office properties. As a minor point, we observe that APTS spent $45k in 1Q19 in expenses related to the potential to internalize functions performed by its manager, which we believe is the first time the company has considered this strategy. At this point, we think internalization is unlikely." (4/30/2019)
