What are Wall Street analysts saying about AvalonBay Communities stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AvalonBay Communities stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Stellar job growth in recent months indicates more household formations and raises expectations for higher apartment demand during the peak leasing period. Given its solid portfolio of high quality assets in premium locations, AvalonBay is well poised to grow. Notably, in the March-issued operating update for first quarter, the company stated that it expects total rental revenues for established communities to be up 2.3–2.4% year over year. However, new apartment deliveries are anticipated to remain elevated in the company’s markets in 2018. Particularly, supply continues to be most noticeable in the urban submarkets. Furthermore, high concession activity amid elevated supply remains a concern. Moreover, in the past six months, its shares have underperformed the industry." (4/17/2018) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Core FFO/sh. of $2.25 for 4Q17 was in line with Cantor/FactSet consensus. The line-item variance to our estimates included higher NOI offset by higher interest expense. The SS revenue growth rate of 2.2% was unchanged seq. Expenses were up 2.7% (+30bps seq.), with real estate taxes up 5.2%. As a result, the SSNOI growth rate was 2.0% (-10bps seq.). Occupancy was 95.5%, and turn declined by 250bps."
