What are Wall Street analysts saying about HCP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HCP stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of HCP with a $28 price target and a Neutral rating. HCP has risen by 16% over the past three months, along with other large-cap REITs, but it is down 17.5% over the past year, compared with a 14% gain in the 12% decline in the S&P U.S. Healthcare REIT Index. We believe that most of the stock’s relative weakness reflects concern about interest rates, deteriorating fundamentals in senior housing and HCP’s restructuring. With HCP’s restructuring nearly at an end, we expect investors to begin valuing the company more on its fundamentals, which we expect to improve, and to worry less about interest rates. Although we think senior housing could remain slow for awhile, we are enthusiastic about HCP’s strategy to leverage its position in life science and MOB." (8/7/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "HCP’s second-quarter 2018 funds from operations (FFO) as adjusted of 47 cents per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a whisker. Further, the company reported higher revenues and net operating income (NOI) on a year-over-year basis. Encouragingly, it increased the guidance for 2018 FFO per share. The company has undertaken strategic portfolio-repositioning measures in a bid to improve the quality of the senior housing portfolio and lower the Brookdale Senior Living operator concentration by selling assets in its portfolio. Further, shares of HCP have outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past three months. Although efforts to reduce the Brookdale concentration are a strategic fit for the long term, the dilutive impact on earnings in the near term from the sale of assets is unavoidable. Further, soft seniors housing market fundamentals amid new supply is anticipated to thwart the company’s pricing power." (8/7/2018)
