What are Wall Street analysts saying about Essential Properties Realty Trust stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Essential Properties Realty Trust stock:
  • 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. " (5/21/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We assume that the overallotment option will be fully exercised, bringing the net proceeds of the issuance to $235 million. This increased total shares and units outstanding by 22% and increased the float by 40%. Most importantly, the transaction increased EPRT’s buying capacity, and we are revising our earnings estimates to reflect increased acquisition activity. To the downside, issuing a sizeable number of shares results in some earnings dilution until the cash is fully invested and levered, but we are fairly confident that EPRT’s experienced management team will be able to leverage its relationships to source an adequate volume of off-market transactions and that the infrastructure of the company is scalable."
