What are Wall Street analysts saying about Whitestone REIT stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Whitestone REIT stock:
  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "WSR reported 1Q18 core FFO of $0.31 versus its dividend of $0.285. Management maintained its 2018 core FFO guidance of $1.19-$1.24; we are maintaining our estimate of $1.24, at the high-end of the range. In our view, WSR has a sound business model, excellent management team, and sufficient earnings power to cover the dividend (which is now yielding over 10%), and we expect 2019 to be an even stronger year once WSR’s Pillarstone position is disposed of and other development projects come fully on line. We reiterate our Buy rating and $16 price target; our price target equates to 12.9x our 2018 core FFO estimate, a 15% discount to peers." (5/8/2018)
