PLD Ratings by Stock Target Advisor

Key Indicators from Q4 Reports of Prologis:

  • Earnings per share (EPS): $0.61 vs. $0.59 estimate 
  • Revenue: $1.45 billion vs. $1.42 billion estimate 
  • Occupancy: 97.1%, flat quarter-over-quarter, down 90 bps year-over-year
  • Net effective rent change: 74.1%, down from 78.5% in Q3

The slower average occupancy growth rate, particularly the year-over-year decline, raised concerns about softening demand in the industrial real estate market. Additionally, the dip in net effective rent change, a measure of pricing power, further fueled worries about Prologis’ ability to maintain its premium rents in the face of a potentially weakening economic climate.
