" (11/9/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We are lowering our 2019 outlook slightly, to reflect NHI’s amended lease with Holiday, but reiterating our $80 price target and Neutral rating. NHI reported in-line 3Q18 results and reaffirmed its full year 2018 guidance, but announced a lease amendment with Holiday (which accounts for 14% of revenue) that will cut the operator’s rent in 2019. M&A was limited, but NHI continued to fund $56 million of development/redevelopment commitments. The company’s relatively low leverage and strong lease coverage, despite Holiday’s issues, reflect NHI’s balance, and its primary reliance upon deal-making with its existing operators." (11/8/2018)
