  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Whitestone REIT is a fully integrated real estate investment trust that acquires, owns, manages, develops and redevelops high quality internet-resistant neighborhood, community and lifestyle retail centers. Whitestone's properties are principally located in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Phoenix, which are among the fastest-growing markets in the country with highly educated workforces, high household incomes and strong job growth. The Company's strategy is to target shifting consumer behavior and purchasing patterns by creating a complementary mix of grocery, dining, health and wellness, education, services, entertainment and specialty retail in its properties. Whitestone's national, regional and local tenants provide daily necessities, needed services and convenience to the community which are not readily available online. Whitestone is headquartered in Houston, Texas. " (8/21/2018)
  • 2. 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)
