“. We are lowering our 2018 nFFO outlook, to reflect 3Q18 results and to account for the current estimate of management incentive fees, but reiterating our $21 price target and Overweight rating. SNH reported an in-line 3Q18, despite a drag from its managed senior housing portfolio, and over the past two years SNH has been repositioning itself in life science and medical office by selling selected senior living communities. This strategy has diversified the company’s real estate portfolio and accelerated its growth. SNH also continues to upgrade its properties, investing $7.4 million in improvements at its senior living communities during 3Q18.”
