Majority of US REITs beat Q1'17 earnings estimates

Publicly traded U.S. equity real estate investment trusts topped S&P Capital IQ earnings estimates by a median of 0.89% in the first quarter, and of the 151 REITs with market caps above $200 million and at least three analyst estimates, 88 beat consensus, while 60 fell short.

Fourteen of the 18 hotel REITs topped earnings estimates, while only one out of the five self-storage REITs, Extra Space Storage Inc., managed to beat its estimate.

Timber REIT Potlatch Corp. bested its S&P Capital IQ EPS estimate by 62.9%, the largest margin. Hotel REIT Xenia Hotels & Resorts Inc. placed second, beating its S&P Capital IQ FFO estimate by 23.1%.

Land REIT Farmland Partners Inc. posted the largest miss of the quarter, falling short of its 10 cents-per-share S&P Capital IQ FFO estimate by 90%. In the previous quarter, Farmland Partners had posted the largest 2016 estimate beat with a beat of 13.7%.

In its earnings release, the company cited certain lease timings and one-time expenses related to the termination of a subadvisory agreement with Prudential for properties formerly owned by American Farmland Co., as well as costs of the American Farmland merger itself, for a decline in financial performance measures.
