  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Colony NorthStar, Inc. is a real estate and investment management firm. It creates long-term value through investing in real estate and real estate-related assets. Colony NorthStar Inc., formerly known as Northstar Asset management Group, is based in New York. " (5/16/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Similar to last quarter, this was another noisy release for Colony NorthStar, Inc. given the earnings miss, continued transition in the portfolio, and the first quarter of consolidated disclosures. Despite all that, there were a lot of positives in the quarter, and we are looking forward to earnings growth through the year as the company continues to deploy capital in its core strategies, realizes increased investment management fees given its brisk pace of capital raising, and manages the liabilities side of its balance sheet. On the valuation front, now that we have full disclosures, we are adjusting our NAV estimate to an in-place" NAV and considering that in combination with an FFO multiple to arrive at a valuation for the shares, which we discuss further below. Overall, while the transition to a hybrid equity REIT structure could take longer than we initially anticipated, we remain positive on the shares and believe that our investment thesis remains intact. As such, we reiterate our Outperform rating and $16.00 price target." (5/15/2017)
