  • KeyBanc Upgrades AvalonBay Communities Inc to "Buy" (AVB)

    KeyBanc announced on Thursday that it has boosted its rating on AvalonBay Communities Inc (AVB) to "Buy." The firm has upgraded AVB from "Hold" to "Buy," and has given the company a $139 price target. This price target suggests a 15% upside from the stock's current price of $120.55. KeyBanc has also upgraded residential REIT UDR, Inc. (UDR) and has cut its rating on Essex Property Trust Inc (ESS) . Analyst Karin Ford noted: "We upgrade the Apartment REIT vertical from Market-Weight to OVERWEIGHT based upon attractive valuation levels that overlook the potential for accelerating fundamentals, as the impact of new supply wanes and continued employment gains support greater rental demand into '15. "We believe the short-cycle nature of the apartment vertical's leases place it relatively well within an env't of rising rates driven by an imprv’g economy; the group's underperformance YTD and current relative valuation level (4% discount to REIT sector on AFFO multiple) reflects concern over slowing fundamentals amid elevated new supply. We think new supply should peak in late-'14 and give way to accelerating absorption trends." AvalonBay Communities shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Thursday. The stock is down 11% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of AvalonBay Communities Inc (AVB) have a 3.55% yield based on Wednesday's closing price of $120.55.

A Jefferies analyst commented, "AVB's 2013 same store NOI growth forecast of 4.0% to 5.5% (vs. 7.6% in 2012) suggests coastal market fundamentals are slowing faster than we anticipated given: 1)rising supply in key markets (DC and Seattle), 2)slow job growth and 3)an improving housing market. We are downgrading AVB to Hold from Buy." Accordingly, the firm also lowered its full-year 2013 FFO forecast for AVB from $6.40 to $6.13 per share. AvalonBay shares rose $2.27, or +1.8%, in premarket trading Tuesday. The stock has fallen nearly 10% over the past twelve months.

  • AvalonBay Downgraded at Stifel Nicolaus (AVB)

    Stifel Nicolaus reported on Friday that they have downgraded real estate investment trust(REIT), AvalonBay Communities, Inc.(AVB) to a "Hold." The firm reported that they have downgraded AVB from a "Buy" to a "Hold," and have eliminated its $145 price target for the company. An analyst from the firm commented, "we are downgrading AVB from Buy to Hold, as we believe the overhang from the $1.9 billion of AVB equity that will be held by Lehman post the closing of the Archstone transaction will weigh on shares. Additionally, AVB shares trade at a 7.9% discount to our $145 NAV, the lowest in the apartment sector (vs. the weighted average apartment REIT sector trading at a 14.5% discount). Upward movement in AVB's shares might be difficult. We remain cautious on the apartment sector heading into 2013." AvalonBay shares were mostly flat during premarket trading Friday. The stock is up 3.8% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of AvalonBay Communities (AVB) have a 2.86% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $135.57.
