What are Wall Street analysts saying about HCP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HCP stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "HCP third-quarter 2018 funds from operations (FFO) as adjusted of 44 cents surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, the bottom line fell short of the prior-year tally of 48 cents. Further, revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Notably, a 6.3% decrease in senior-housing operating portfolio cash net operating income (NOI) marred results. The company has undertaken portfolio-repositioning measures by selling assets in its portfolio. Although such efforts are a strategic fit for the long term, the dilutive impact on earnings in the near term from these dispositions are unavoidable. Further, softness in the seniors housing market fundamentals amid new supply is anticipated to thwart the company’s pricing power. Although shares of HCP have outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past year, the stock has limited upside potential given lack of positive estimate revisions." (11/13/2018)
  • 2. 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)
