What are analysts saying about Crown Castle International Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Crown Castle International Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Crown Castle reported impressive second-quarter 2017 financial results. Buyout of Wilcon Holdings will enable Crown Castle attain ownership over 28,000 route miles of fiber. Moreover, Crown Castle’s extensive tower portfolio, increased demand for infrastructure, healthy leasing activity, continual buyout of towers and growing demand for mobile broadband act as major positives. Crown Castle acquired 9,700 wireless towers from AT&T and 7,200 from T-Mobile US. The deployment of 5G network should drive growth on the company’s tower and small cell assets as the wireless carriers look to expand and enhance their networks. Over the past three months, the stock has outperformed the industry. However, high customer concentration, consolidated wireless industry, expenses related to technological changes and foreign currency exchange rate risks remain potent headwinds." (7/27/2017)
- 2. Macquarie analysts commented, "We remain constructive on Crown’s long-term position to capitalize on the growth of small cells and a fiber footprint that will span 60k+ miles. Upcoming network investments and a focus on densification bode well for Crown, particularly with buildouts slated for ‘18/’19. However, much of the growth will be long-tailed and fiber portfolios carry different profiles. In addition, leverage of 5.9x is above its 4-5x target leaving little room for financial flexibility. Our target goes slightly lower to US$107 based on 20x ‘18E AFFO/sh to reflect revised Wilcon estimates now in guidance. Impact The US$7.1bn Lightower deal doubles Crown’s fiber footprint in top metro markets. With 32k+ miles of fiber in top cities including Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia as well as minimal overlap with Crown’s current footprint, the combined company will own/have rights to 60k+ miles of fiber. Crown’s fiber footprint will cover the top 10 markets and 23 out of the top 25 metro markets. This all-cash deal values Lightower at 13.5x adj. EBITDA (vs. Sunesys at ~16x and CCI currently trading at ~20x) and should close by year-end ’17. Within its first full year of operation, Lightower is projected to contribute: 1) US$850- 870m in site rental revenues; 2) US$163-213m in net income; 3) US$510-530m in adj. EBITDA; and 4) US$465-485m in AFFO before financing costs. Management also expects to increase the dividend by US$0.15-0.20/sh p.a; our US$107 target implies a ~4% yield with the proposed increase. The long-term dividend growth target is now 7-8% from 6-7% previously." (7/19/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Crown Castle International Corporation (NYSE:CCI) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings 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). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus 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.
