What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ventas stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ventas stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ventas is poised to grow on the back of its diversified portfolio, strategic acquisitions and strong balance sheet. Rising healthcare spending and aging population augur well for long term growth. Further, the sale of its skilled nursing facilities is in sync with its strategy of reducing emphasis on this particular healthcare real estate category as it puts pressure on the company’s revenues due to the change in medical billing procedure. However, elevated supply of seniors housing assets in certain markets is likely to put pressure on rent and occupancy growth in the near-term. Further, the company is exposed to concentration risks since the majority of its revenues are generated from a few tenants. Hike in interest rate is also a concern for the company. Moreover, shares of Ventas underperformed the industry it belongs to, in the past three months." (4/16/2018)
