What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bluerock Residential Growth REIT stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bluerock Residential Growth REIT stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bluerock Residential Growth REIT, Inc. operates as a real estate investment trust. It acquires apartment properties in demographically attractive growth markets throughout the United States. Bluerock Residential Growth REIT, Inc. is based in New York. " (11/9/2018) 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We think the market has overly discounted the potential for balance sheet expansion and same store sales growth at Bluerock Residential Growth REIT (BRG). The board of directors cut the common dividend by a whopping 44% in 2017 because of the internalization of management, which led to significantly higher G&A expense in lieu of a base management fee of 1.5% of equity. Market participants punished the stock, which now trades at a ~34% discount to NAV, compared to small cap multifamily REIT peers trading at an ~10% discount to NAV. We think that BRG will be able to grow into its admittedly swollen expense base over the next few years to the extent that it is able to source off-market transactions at attractive discounts compared to fully marketed deals, and to the extent that it can continue to fund its growth through the issuance of redeemable preferred stock."
