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. " (3/19/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We are lowering our price target slightly to $11.00, based on lower earnings and a lower NAV estimate. While the company expects to cover the dividend with core FFO less recurring capex in 2H19, we calculate that dividend coverage will be elusive in 4Q19 by a small dollar amount (about $1 million, or a penny per share); therefore our price target is a 6% discount to NAV. If the company could cover its dividends and show stronger earnings momentum, we think the shares could trade in-line with or even at a premium to forward NAV. The company is on track to deliver $8-$9 million of incremental revenues from the first two phases of its value-add program and is beginning to soft circle units for renovation in 2021 and beyond. IRT renovated 1,232 units in 2018, and targets completions on 1,500 units in 2019." (2/22/2019)
