What's Next for Physicians Realty (DOC)? (revised) - Analyst Blog

By

Physicians Realty Trust ( DOC ) shares have been enjoying positive momentum lately, with the stock recently hitting a 52 week high and up more than +9% year to date.

But after this positive price momentum, investors have to be wondering if Physicians Realty can continue to push higher or if a pullback is overdue. One place to find the answer could be in the recent earnings estimate revision activity that is taking place in DOC.

Recent Estimates

Despite the move higher in Physicians Realty's stock price, we have seen pretty negative earnings estimate revisions as of late, which means that analysts are becoming more bearish about DOC's prospects. In fact, 2 estimates have gone lower in the past two months compared to none moving higher, while the consensus estimate has moved in the wrong direction over the same time frame too.  

We actually give DOC a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) based on this information and think that the move higher for this company might be a bit overdone. So while trading has certainly been good lately, estimates suggest that this run could soon enter a consolidation period and that a pullback may be ahead for this 'sell' ranked stock in the near term.
