Equity Residential’s Q2 Results Beat Wall Street Estimates

On July 25, Equity Residential (EQR) posted FFO (funds from operations) of $0.81 for Q2 2018, beating Wall Street’s expectations by a penny and exceeding the mid-point of management’s guidance of $0.77–$0.81. That marked an improvement of $0.04 (or 5.2%) from FFO of $0.77 in Q2 2017. Increased rentals, higher occupancy rates, and upside margins benefited its second-quarter bottom-line results.
