Several brokerages have updated their recommendations and price targets on shares of DDR Corp. (NYSE: DDR) in the last few weeks:

  • 11/8/2017 – DDR Corp. was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Shares of DDR Corp. underperformed its industry year to date. Nonetheless, its third-quarter 2017 funds from operations (FFO) per share of 30 cents surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 27 cents. Results indicate higher-than-expected business in the company’s Continental U.S. portfolio. Going forward, the company is likely to benefit from its diversified portfolio in upscale locations and presence of well-capitalized tenants on its roster. In addition to this, aggressive capital-recycling program, balance-sheet improvement efforts, improved liquidity and maturity schedule are likely to drive its growth over the long term. Nevertheless, the choppy retail real estate environment remains a concern. Further, aggressive asset divestures have a dilutive effect on earnings. Rate hike add to the company’s woes.”

According to Zacks, “Shares of DDR have outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past three months. Encouragingly, the stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2017 and 2018 funds from operations (FFO) per share being revised upward in a month's time.

With proceeds generated from disposition of assets and capital market access, it made progress on leverage reduction and lengthening of average debt maturity. Moreover, the company is focused on streamlining its organizational structure to enhance cost efficiency, centralize key operational decision making and improve bottom-line growth. However, the lackluster retail real estate market and the near-term earnings dilutive effects of divestitures remain concerns.”
