- 2. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We view the fully updated 2018 guidance as a negative when taking into account the business transition to phase out the non-core C3 business and restructure the company towards its new hybrid model. In particular, we view the churn guidance rate of 3-6% for the core business as a negative because this implies that the complete churn rate for the year may exceed the already high 2017 level of 8.4%, which we note is the highest among QTS’ data center REIT peers. We expect to learn more on the earnings conference call on the company’s 2018 plans. Reiterate Underperform on QTS, $43 Target Price (Current Share Price below $43 After-Hours): Following our QTS downgrade to Underperform (see our note “QTS: Pressures Mounting Against QTS”), we await quarter and the full year guidance commentary from company management for more details."
