What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ventas stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ventas stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Ventas have declined over the past year. Moreover, the trend in estimate revisions of 2018 funds from operations (FFO) per share does not indicates a favorable outlook for the company. Notably, Ventas is making efforts to unlock value of its assets through opportunistic disposals and using proceeds to retire debt and invest in growth opportunities. Although such efforts enable it to optimize its portfolio and better manage financial obligations, near-term dilution in earnings cannot be bypassed. Further, elevated supply of senior-housing assets in certain of the company’s markets will likely put pressure on rent and occupancy growth in the near term. Also, cut throat competition from national and local healthcare operators limits its ability to drive top-line growth and retain tenants at favorable terms. Moreover, rise in the interest rate remains a concern for the company." (12/31/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are reiterating our $56 price target and Neutral rating, and raising our 2018-19 estimates modestly following better-than-expected 2Q18 results. As expected, same store SHOP NOI (32% of total NOI) fell because of new competition in but starts are at their lowest level since 2012, and we expect occupancy to improve in 2H18. BKD’s restructuring accounted for most of the deceleration in 2Q18 triple-net same store cash NOI (NNN SSNOI), but this was offset by fees related to the extension of its leases. Office slowed, but life science (a quarter of Office NOI) accelerated." (7/27/2018)
