Manufactured-home real estate investment trusts are forecast to post the highest quarterly growth in funds from operations among REIT property sectors when they report third-quarter earnings.
Consensus estimates put the REITs' expected quarter-over-quarter FFO-per-share growth at 10.99%, while year over year, a 6.32% increase is expected, according to an S&P Global Market Intelligence analysis. The manufactured home sector has the greatest projected quarterly increases in adjusted FFO per share and EBITDA as well, at 13.93% and 14.50%, respectively.
At the other end of the spectrum, analysts expect hotel REITs to report the largest quarter-over-quarter decline in FFO per share, at a median of negative 13.00%. Hotel REITs are also forecast to be the bottom-performing sector on a quarter-over-quarter AFFO-per-share and EBITDA basis.
According to analyst estimates, the median FFO-per-share growth rate for all U.S. REITs above $200 million in market capitalization is estimated at negative 0.54% on a quarterly basis, but is up 0.77% on a year-over-year basis.
