Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Mack-Cali Realty (NYSE:CLI) from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research report sent to investors on Monday, November 13th.
According to Zacks, “Mack-Cali Realty reported third-quarter 2017 core funds from operations (FFO) per share of 57 cents, missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a penny. Results indicate decrease in base rents and revenues from real estate services. Mack-Cali has been making progress in the 2015 strategic plan, aimed at transforming the company by focusing on waterfront and transit-based office holdings, and luxury multi-family portfolio growth. Therefore, it has been aggressively disposing assets. While such measures are a strategic fit for the long term, the dilutive impact on earnings from huge asset sales cannot be bypassed in the near term. Nevertheless, Mack-Cali has been able to improve its overall portfolio mix, lower exposure to suburban office assets and expand multi-family portfolio. The stock has also seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter 2017 being revised upward in a week’s time.”
