UPDATE: ISI Group Raises Target on Home Properties to $67
ISI Group maintains its Buy rating on Home Properties (NYSE: HME) and increases its price target by $1 to $67 as the company beats estimates and guides better than expected.
ISI notes, "HME's beat was driven by both better results on revenues and expenses. 2012 FFO/sh guidance at the midpoint was $3.87 within a range of $3.79 to $3.95 which compares favorably to our previous estimate of $3.86 and the Street at $3.84. 4Q SS NOI growth came in at 7.6% vs. the group average of 8.4%, not surprising given the company's “renter by necessity” profile and class B/C asset mix. Based on the stronger Q4 results, we are raising our 2012 FFO estimate to $3.92."
HME closed at $60.12 a share on Thursday.
