What are Wall Street analysts saying about Equity Residential stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Equity Residential stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Equity Residential reported third-quarter 2018 normalized funds from operations (FFO) per share of 83 cents, in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate and 3.7% higher than the year-ago quarter. Results reflected improved same-store net operating income (NOI) and lease-up NOI, partly offset by higher total interest expenses. Elevated demand and focus on customer service aided high occupancy level, low turnover and strong renewal rates. Therefore, the company expects 2018 same-store revenue growth at the high end of its forecasts. Equity Residential is poised for growth amid economic recovery and job-market growth, favorable demographics, lifestyle transformation, and creation of households. Moreover, shares of Equity Residential outperformed its industry in three months’ time. Nevertheless, elevated supply in a number of its markets may strain rental rates and result in high concessions. Furthermore, rate hike remains another concern." (10/26/2018) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Estimate Update. We are tweaking our 2018 normalized FFO/sh. estimate to $3.24 from $3.25, and lowering our NAV/sh. estimate to $69.80 from $71.40 and SS revenue estimate to 1.7% from 2.0%. Company’s 2018 rev. outlook range is 1.0-2.25%, Expenses range is 3.5-4.5% and SSNOI is 0-1.5%, and MP Normalized FFO/sh. guidance is $3.22."
