What are analysts saying about Government Properties Income Trust stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Government Properties Income Trust stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Government Properties Income Trust is a real estate investment trust (REIT). The Company was formed to invest in properties that are leased to government tenants. The Company owns 29 properties, 25 of which are leased primarily to the United States Government and four of which are leased to the states of California, Maryland, Minnesota and South Carolina, respectively. The Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of HRPT Properties Trust (HRPT). " (8/15/2017)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Last week, GOV announced it would acquire First Potomac Realty Trust for approximately $1.4B, including $11.15 per FPO share and the repayment and/or assumption of FPO debt. To finance the deal, GOV also announced a 25M share equity offering. The FPO deal is expected to close by YE17 and be leverage neutral after accounting for the equity offering and the assumption/pay down of FPO debt. GOV expects the deal to be accretive post-2018. The transaction is estimated to be completed at a 7.0% cap rate, and GOV expects no impact on its current shareholder distributions (dividends), which are currently $0.43/quarter ($1.72 annualized), a 9.3% yield on Monday’s close ($18.46). In our view, the acquisition of FPO, with its Washington, D.C.-focused portfolio, is a good fit for GOV as many of the properties are leased to government agencies and/or contractors. However, the market punished GOV shares, which had traded as high as $22.89 on June 20, to a closing low of $18.31 on June 30." (7/5/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE:GOV) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
