Should its Tier One assets stabilize during 2018, we believe WPG shares could experience a bounce. However, the negative underlying print continues to scare dedicated REIT investors and keep generalists on the sidelines. We maintain our Underperform rating as investors have yet to see any of the fruits of WPG’s redevelopment labors; our $6 price target is due to continued downward pressure on both NAV and earnings."
