Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT PT Lifted By CIBC, 'Sector Outperformer' Maintained

 March 19, 2012 04:22 PM


CIBC World Markets Inc. raised its price target on shares of Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT (TSE:CSH.UN) to $10 from $9.75, while maintaining its "Sector Outperformer" rating.

The brokerage maintained its 2012 funds from operations estimate of $0.74 and its 2013 estimate of $0.80.

The company's Q4 FD FFO was $0.17/unit versus $0.15/unit a year ago and CIBC's $0.16/unit estimate. Q4 FFO was boosted by SP-NOI growth, acquisitions and lower general & administrative expenses, which offset lower mezzanine loan interest and management fee income.

On February 15, Chartwell announced that it had agreed to acquire in a 50/50 JV with a U.S. REIT a 39-property Canadian seniors' portfolio comprising 7,662 suites for about $425 million (at CSH's interest). The acquisition is expected to close on or about May 1.

Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT operates as an open-ended trust that engages in the ownership, development, management, and operation of seniors housing facilities. Its portfolio of senior housing facilities ranges from independent living facilities, through retirement homes to long-term care facilities.

CSH.UN is trading up 0.33% at $9.00 on Monday.
