What are analysts saying about Colony NorthStar stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Colony NorthStar stock:

  • 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. " (3/27/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "This was a messy release for Colony NorthStar, Inc., as management lowered FY17 earnings guidance by 10% before even reporting earnings as a consolidated company, driving a sell-off in shares. We view this sell-off as an opportunity. We expected the messiness, but what we did not expect was for the company to move more quickly towards the hybrid equity REIT model it has been targeting. A good part of the decreased earnings guidance for the year is attributable to accelerated divestment of assets in the other debt & equity segment, which will result in an earnings drag while the $1 billion of expected capital from the sales is reinvested. Additionally, Colony and NSAM both raised less third-party capital than previously anticipated, leading to a lower revenue base going into 2017. We view these as short-term hiccups and believe that our investment thesis remains intact. As such, we reiterate our Outperform rating and FBR Alpha Generator status on shares of Colony NorthStar, as it remains at a discount to our updated $17.15 NAV estimate. However, given a lower NAV, we are lowering our price target to $16.00 from $16.50, which implies a 21% total return when including the dividend." (3/2/2017)
