Jefferies analyst Linda Tsai downgraded Macerich to Underperform from Hold with a price target of $19, down from $29. In spite of Macerich's "quality portfolio and low valuation," its EBITDA is under pressure from store closures, while also servicing a higher amount of debt, Tsai tells investors in a research note. Without rightsizing its dividend or executing on a jopint venture sale to help de-lever, the analyst expects continued pressure on the company's cash flow.
