By Carrie Williams

B.Riley FBR analyst Craig Kucera maintained a Buy rating on BRT Realty Trust (BRTResearch Report) yesterday and set a price target of $15. The company’s shares closed last Monday at $14.34, close to its 52-week high of $14.40.

Kucera said:

“We are lowering our earnings estimates on Buy-rated BRT Apartments Corp. (BRT), post-2Q19 results, which were in line with expectations, but are taking into account recent capital recycling and reduced expectations regarding the impact from the company’s value-add investment strategy in 2020. As such, we are lowering our 2019E and our 2020 to $0.99. BRT holds a portfolio of predominantly Sunbelt properties, with a mix of class A (approximately one-third of the portfolio, in our estimation) and class B multifamily assets, of which a number are currently undergoing a light (~$5,000/unit) value add.”
