Cantor Fitzgerald Sticks to Its Hold Rating for MedEquities Realty Trust (MRT)

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Joseph France maintained a Hold rating on MedEquities Realty Trust (MRT) today and set a price target of $10. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $8.73, close to its 52-week low of $8.25.

France said:

“We rate MRT $10 price target. We like the company’s focus on post- acute care, particularly skilled nursing, inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long- term acute care hospitals, but we are concerned about its concentration of operators. OnPointe, which accounts for 23% of rent, has been a challenge, and the company has cut its 2018 outlook primarily to reflect the transition of its portfolio. Valuation Summary We derive our 12-month price target of $10 using a blend of our market-based comparable-company analysis and five-year discounted cash-flow model.”

According to, France is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 10.6% and a 60.8% success rate. France covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Cross Country Healthcare, Addus Homecare Corp, and US Physical Therapy.
