What are Wall Street analysts saying about Independence Realty Trust stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Independence Realty Trust stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Independence Realty Trust, Inc. is a real estate investment trust. It is focused on acquiring and owning well-located garden-style and mid-rise apartment properties. The Company owns apartment properties primarily in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Texas and Virginia. Independence Realty Trust, Inc. is based in United States. " (5/18/2019) 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We believe that 1Q19 results suggest that IRT is on track to deliver the incremental $8-$9 million of revenues from the first two phases of its value-add program. IRT renovated 358 units through the end of 1Q19 at a 16% total IRR and is targeting completion on 1,500 units in 2019. The process is improving, and the company manages the inventory of renovated units available for rent by slowing down or speeding up turnover. Part of the reason we see the potential for dividend coverage (measured after recurring capex) being pushed out to 2020 is that we project more dispositions than acquisitions in 2019. This would effectively lower leverage, a goal that we think is slightly more imperative than dividend coverage at this juncture, given that the dividend shortfall is so modest, and that high leverage can exacerbate risk."
