Truist analyst Michael Lewis lowered the firm's price target on Brandywine Realty to $11 from $14 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares as part of a broader research note on Office REITs that assumes higher debt costs and a slower assumed occupancy recovery. While a potential recession may still not be "fully baked into estimates", the new price targets reflect elevated risk via higher DCF discount rates, lower NAV estimates, larger assumed discounts to NAV and lower target FFO multiples, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

Brandywine Realty downgraded to Hold from Buy at Truist » 06:2101/1801/18/22

Truist analyst Michael Lewis downgraded Brandywine Realty to Hold from Buy with an unchanged $15 price target as part of a broader research note previewing the 2022 outlook for REITs. The sector should perform roughly in line with the broader market as an improving economy supports healthy occupancy and rent growth, while rising interest rates weigh on the cost of capital and already-elevated REIT stock valuations, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Lewis adds that he sees a modest occupancy decline for Brandywine in 2022, also noting that with 75% of its portfolio in Philadelphia and 22% in Austin, the REIT may not "neatly" fit a Sunbelt secular growth theme.
