According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Equity Residential have outperformed its industry, in the past three months. However, this trend is unlikely to continue because there are elevated levels of new supply across the company’s markets. This high supply is anticipated to put pressure on rental rates and adversely affect revenue growth this year. Further, there is high concession activity amid higher supply, which remains another concern. Furthermore, rate hike added to its woes. Nevertheless, the company is making concerted efforts to reposition its portfolio in high barrier-to-entry/core markets. Such efforts have the capacity to drive long term growth. Also, the company is anticipated to benefit from favorable demographics, lifestyle transformation and creation of new households." (1/9/2018) Who are some of Equity Residential's key competitors?
