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, "Shares of AvalonBay have outperformed its industry over the past six months. Moreover, the recent trend in estimate revisions of 2019 funds from operations (FFO) per share indicates a favorable outlook. In December, the company completed the sale of 80% interest in five Manhattan apartment communities. The move reflects its effort to monetize a considerable portion of investments in these properties. Going forward, AvalonBay is expected to benefit from its high quality assets in premium locations, favorable demographics, household formation, recovering economy and job-market growth. Yet, new apartment deliveries are anticipated to remain elevated in the company’s markets in the near-to-mid term, limiting robust rent growth for AvalonBay." (1/15/2019)

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." (2/1/2018)
