Investment Analysts’ updated eps estimates for Tuesday, October 24th:

American Campus Communities (NYSE:ACC) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at FBR & Co. FBR & Co currently has a $56.00 target price on the stock. The analysts wrote, “After a relatively drama-filled quarter of lease-up results and acquisitions, the company put up what we view as a good print, all things considered. While updated FY17 guidance ranges came in slightly below consensus (by $0.01 each), we don’t think this is the end of the world, as $0.04 of the guidance reduction came from one- time (hurricanes) or timing related (bond offering) items. Perhaps the best news of the print was the initial 2018/19 revenue growth target range, +2.5% to +4.0%, which we view as a relatively conservative and achievable range. On the external growth front, ACC added a $42 million ACE deal at University of Southern California Health Sciences campus in Los Angeles and bought its third asset at the University of Washington. We look for updated color on next year’s supply picture and capital allocation plans on the earnings call.””
