What are Wall Street analysts saying about QTS Realty Trust stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about QTS Realty Trust stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "QTS Realty Trust Inc. is a real estate investment trust. It is an owner, developer and operator of carrier-neutral, multi-tenant data centers. QTS's data centers are facilities that house the network and computer equipment of multiple customers and provide access to a range of communications carriers. The Company refers to its spectrum of core data center products as its 3Cs which consists of Custom Data Center, Colocation and Cloud and Managed Services. QTS Realty Trust Inc. is headquartered in Kansas, United States. " (11/2/2018) 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.
