What are Wall Street analysts saying about Macerich stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Macerich stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Macerich have underperformed the industry over the past three month. In addition, the stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2019 funds from operations (FFO) per share being revised downward in a month’s time. During first-quarter 2018, the company recorded lower portfolio occupancy. Notably, shrinking footfall amid shift of consumers toward online channels, store closures and bankruptcy of retailers are expected to adversely affect the company’s performance in the near term. While Macerich is striving to counter the pressure through portfolio revamp and efforts to support omni-channel retailing, the implementation of such measures requires a decent upfront cost and therefore, would limit any robust growth in its profit margins. Further, hike in interest rates remains a concern for the company." (5/30/2018)
- 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We reiterate our Outperform rating and price target of $75 per share, a discount to our estimated NAV of approximately $84." (2/7/2018)
