Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Joseph France reiterated a Buy rating on Global Medical REIT (GMRE) today and set a price target of $11. The company’s shares opened today at $9.47, close to its 52-week high of $10.05.
“: We are raising our 2019 outlook and increasing our 12- month price target to $11 from 10 to reflect a pickup in acquisitions, and reiterating our Overweight rating. GMRE is accelerating its pace of acquisitions, and with its stronger balance sheet, we believe that this is sustainable. Equally important, the company is fully covering its dividends on an AFFO basis after two years of growth and development. We believe that GMRE’s size and focus on smaller off-market transactions allow for a larger number of completed deals with favorable terms and attractive yields, and the larger deal flow should help GMRE grow its portfolio and further improve dividend coverage.”
