- 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We are updating our quarterly estimates to adjust for the ongoing Louisville convention renovation, the Northern California renovation disruption, and the weaker year-on-year RevPAR comparisons in Houston and Austin. Our updated second quarter normalized FFO goes down by four cents to $0.69 per share, three cents below consensus. As a result, our full-year normalized FFO estimate declines by three cents to $2.37 per share. Because of these tweaks, we are marginally adjusting our NAV estimate downward to $24.15 per share. We remain Underperform on RLJ for the time being due to a softer second quarter and greater uncertainty with the pending merger." (6/14/2017)

Consensus Ratings for RLJ Lodging Trust (NYSE:RLJ) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
