The RMR Group Inc (RMR)

In a report released yesterday, Chris Kotowski from Oppenheimer maintained a Hold rating on The RMR Group Inc. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $68.39.

Kotowski said:

“RMR reported $0.50 vs. our and consensus $0.56 estimates. Excluding a number of special items, which included impairment loss on TRMT, separation cost and transaction costs related to the Private Fund, we would put the “core” number at $0.61. While RMR has a robust business model that generates predictable EPS per quarter before incentive fees, the GOV/SIR occupancy challenges and assets disposition, as well as the rent coverage issue from FVE on SNH, create headwinds on RMR’s future base management fee and incentive fee. Despite the recent pullback, our earning forecasts are down, so we remain on the sidelines.”

According to TipRanks.com, Kotowski is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 9.1% and a 57.5% success rate. Kotowski covers the Financial sector, focusing on stocks such as Eagle Point Credit Company Inc, Great Elm Capital Corporation, and Fidus Investment Corporation.
