  • Equity Residential Q1 FFO Falls; Adjusted FFO Tops Estimates, but Revenues Miss (EQR)

    Equity Residential (EQR) , an apartment-owning real estate investment trust, reported late on Tuesday that its earnings fell 58% in the first quarter, as the company incurred large costs related to the acquisition of Archstone. Excluding these charges, the company was able to top Wall Street estimates, but revenue missed views. The Chicago-based company said it saw funds from operations (FFO) of $79.1 million, or 22 cents per share, in the first quarter, down from $188.3 million, or 60 cents per share, in the same period a year ago. Funds from operations is an important earnings metric used by real estate investment trusts which typically excludes losses and gains from property sales and eliminates the impact of deprecation. Excluding certain items, which includes more than $136 million of costs related to the acquisition of former rival Archstone, Equity Residential posted FFO of $226.2 million, or 64 cents per share, compared to the adjusted FFO of $191.9 million, or 61 cents per share, last year. Analysts, according to those polled by Thomson Reuters, were expecting the company to post an adjusted FFO of 63 cents per share. Equity Residential's quarterly revenue rose 4% to $539.16 million for the quarter. Analysts were expecting the company to see revenues of $563.86 million. Looking forward, the company expects second quarter adjusted FFO to be between 67 and 71 cents per share. Analysts expect FFO to be 71 cents per share. For 2013, Equity Residential maintained its previous forecast, expecting FFO to be between $2.80 and $2.90 per share. Analysts see FFO coming in at $2.84 per share in 2013.

  • Equity Residential Q4 FFO Rises, But Misses Wall Street Estimates; Issues Low 2013 Outlook (EQR)

    After the bell on Tuesday, apartment owner Equity Residential (EQR) reported its fourth-quarter earnings with funds from operations missing Wall Street's forecast. The Chicago-based REIT said that its fourth-quarter adjusted funds from operations (FFO), which is a common metric REITs use to measure earnings, were $243.9 million, or 75 cents per share, up from $204.6 million, or 65 cents per share, earned in the year earlier period. The company's net income was $365.98 million, or $1.17 per share, versus $99.02 million, or 33 cents per share, earned a year ago. Revenue for the quarter was $547.65 million, a year-over-year growth of 11%. According to Thomson Reuters, these results missed the Wall Street estimates as analysts were expecting EQR to see an adjusted FFO of 77 cents per share on revenue of $551.80 million in the quarter. Analysts suggest that this fourth-quarter earnings miss was partially due to confusion over the costs of the pending purchase of Archstone, a large apartment owner. EQR has agreed to acquire 60% of Archstone's assets with rival AvalonBay (AVB) purchasing the remaining 40%. Looking ahead to 2013, Equity Residential is forecasting FFO to be in a range of $2.80 to $2.90 per share, while analysts expected FFO to be $2.94 per share. Equity Residential shares saw no movement during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is down -10.11% in the trailing twelve months. The Bottom Line Shares of Equity Residential (EQR) have a dividend yield of 3.29% based on last night's closing price of $54.16 and the company's annualized dividend of $1.78 per share. Equity Residential (EQR) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

  • Jefferies Downgrades Equity Residential to "Hold" (EQR)

    On Tuesday analysts at Jefferies & Co. downgraded real estate investment trust Equity Residential (EQR) after uninspiring fourth quarter earnings results from fellow REIT AvalonBay Communities (AVB) . The analysts downgraded EQR from "Buy" to "Hold" and now see shares reaching $58, down from the previous target of $64. This new target suggests a 6.5% upside to Monday's closing price of $54.46. A Jefferies analyst commented, "We still believe that the ongoing portfolio transformation at EQR will lead to higher multiples, but a meaningful slowdown in coastal market fundamentals appears to be occurring at the same time that EQR is increasing exposure to these markets. We therefore downgrade EQR to a Hold rating." Equity Residential shares were flat during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is down -9.61% over the past year. The Bottom Line Shares of EQR have a dividend yield of 3.27% based on last night's closing price of $54.46 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.78 per share.

  • Equity Residential Upgraded at Jefferies (EQR)

    Jefferies & Co. reported that they have upgraded real estate investment trust (REIT), Equity Residential(EQR) on Tuesday. The firm has increased their rating on EQR from a "Hold" to a "Buy," and has raised their price target from $59 to $64. This price target suggests a 9% increase from the stock's current price of $57.66.

The stock has increased 3.5% in the past year. The Bottom Line Shares of Equity Residential (EQR) have a 3.09% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $57.66.

  • Goldman Sachs Downgrades Equity Residential to a "Sell" (EQR)

    Goldman Sachs has lowered its rating on REIT, Equity Residential(EQR) to a "Sell" Monday. The firm reported that they have reduced their rating on EQR from "Neutral" to "Sell," and have reaffirmed their $57 price target. This price target suggests a 0.2% decrease from the stock's current price of $57.13. The stock has been mostly flat YTD. An analyst from the firm noted, "we downgrade shares of Equity Residential (EQR) to Sell from Neutral as we see lower return potential relative to our housing and storage coverage group. Although our $57 price target (in line with current levels) implies a potential total return of 3%, this is below our expectations for storage REITs EXR and PSA (15% average total expected return). We see limited opportunity for EQR to grow earnings through either internal or external growth given multifamily fundamentals." Equity Residential shares were mostly flat during premarket trading Monday. The Bottom Line Shares of Equity Residential (EQR) have a 2.77% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $57.13. The stock has technical support in the $52-$54 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $60-$62 price levels.
