What are Wall Street analysts saying about Welltower stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Welltower stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Welltower underperformed its industry in the past three months. However, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter 2017 funds from operations (FFO) per share remained unchanged in a month’s time. Notably, the company is set to acquire a portfolio of four rental continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) and convert those to a RIDEA structure. Further, it has secured a major institutional investor for the development of an assisted living and memory care community in midtown Manhattan. Moreover, Welltower’s high quality seniors housing portfolio, concentrated in major metro markets, is likely to serve as growth driver in the long run amid the rising senior citizen population that spends more on healthcare services compared to the average population. However, rate hike remains a concern because of its high exposure to long-term leased assets. Adverse effects on earnings due to increased dispositions add to its woes." (1/23/2018)
- 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Welltower reported FFO $1.10 per share matching our $1.10 estimate and beating consensus median of $1.09. FAD was $0.99, beat our estimate of $0.96 and consensus $0.95 per share. We are raising price target to $70/sh. Reiterate Buy rating." (2/23/2017)

Welltower (NYSE:HCN) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks 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). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst 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.
