  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Essential Properties Realty Trust, Inc. is a real estate company. It owns, acquires and manages single-tenant properties which are net leased on a long-term basis to service-oriented and experience-based businesses. The company serves restaurants, car washes, automotive services, medical services, convenience stores, entertainment, early childhood education, health and fitness sector. Essential Properties Realty Trust, Inc. is based in Princeton, New Jersey. " (2/14/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of Trust (EPRT) with an Outperform rating and a $17 price target. EPRT acquires free-standing, single-tenant commercial real estate leased to middle-market companies that are primarily in service businesses. These properties are considered by the tenant to be essential to the generation of revenues. Middle-market companies (with revenues between $20 million and $500 million) do not have the same access to capital that larger companies enjoy, so EPRT can offer terms that are attractive relative to other capital providers and still generate good risk-adjusted returns for its shareholders."
