What are analysts saying about Alexandria Real Estate Equities stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alexandria Real Estate Equities stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Alexandria have underperformed the industry, year to date. Recently, the company announced that its ground development project —100 Binney Street — was 100% pre-leased, in advance of its delivery in fourth-quarter 2017. However, the company’s global footprint makes it vulnerable to currency fluctuations. Moreover, uncertainty in global economies remains a woe. Further, the company’s capital recycling strategy, which entails sale of non-core assets and subsequently redeploying the proceeds in development and redevelopment projects is likely to result in near-term dilution of earnings. Also, interest rate hike remains a concern. Nevertheless, robust cash flow and solid balance sheet are the company’s strengths." (10/3/2017)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "Since February 28th, ARE shares have retreated down just over -7.5% versus REITs down -3.3%. In our view, ARE shares at current levels represent an attractive value in this high quality niche office REIT. Based on ARE's closing price and our current target of $123 implies a total return of just under 15%. We are upgrading ARE shares from In-Line to Outperform." (3/21/2017)
