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, "Shares of HCP have outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past three months. However, the trend in estimate revisions for 2019 funds from operations (FFO) per share does not indicate a favorable outlook for the company.  Notably, HCP remains on track to execute portfolio-repositioning measures in a bid to improve the quality of the senior housing portfolio and lower operator concentration. Further, focus to strengthen its balance sheet by using sale proceeds to repay debt also bodes well. Also, investments in medical office and life science real estate properties are expected to drive long-term growth. Yet, the dilutive impact on earnings in the near term from asset disposals is unavoidable. Further, the choppy senior housing fundamentals and elevated supply in some of the company’s markets will drag HCP’s results." (3/14/2019)
  • 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)
