  • 4/11/2018 – Host Marriott L P was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating. They now have a $20.00 price target on the stock. According to Zacks, “Shares of Host Hotels have outperformed the industry it belongs to, in the past six months. The stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year funds from operations (FFO) per share remain unchanged in a month’s time. The company is likely to gain from its solid portfolio of upscale hotels across lucrative markets. Strategic capital-recycling program and a healthy balance sheet bode well for long-term growth. Notably, concurrent with fourth-quarter 2017 earnings release, the company announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire three Hyatt-managed hotels. On the other hand, the company is monetizing a considerable part of real estate in Washington D.C. and lowering its exposure in New York. Nevertheless, supply growth, specifically in the company’s key markets, remains a concern. Also, rate hike adds to its woes.”
