Terreno Realty Co. (NYSE:TRNO)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reissued by equities research analysts at National Securities in a report released on Monday. They currently have a $29.00 price target on the stock, up from their prior price target of $28.00. National Securities’ price objective suggests a potential upside of 5.57% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “TRNO 4Q and FY2016 Update: First and foremost, it is important to note that approximately 89.9% of TRNO’s leased space includes pre-determined fixed rental increases or (C)onsumer (P)rice (I)ndex-based rental increases. TRNO reported 4Q16 funds from operations (“FFO”) of $10.02mln or $0.22 per share, a record high, +10.6% Q/Q and +35.5% Y/Y on $29.84mln of revenue, +15.6% Q/Q and +23.3% Y/Y. The increase in revenue and both FFO measures are attributable to TRNO’s continued robust portfolio growth, adding 917, 110 rentable square feet for the TTM period, +8.3%, with a portfolio that as of 12/31/16 stood at 11,997,484. Congruent with increases in owned square footage, revenues, and FFO, is TRNO’s dividend, which was recently raised to $0.20 per share per quarter, +11.1% Q/Q and +25% Y/Y. As management continues to look for accretive expansion opportunities and increase operating efficiencies, another 700k square feet is under contract, we expect the consistent history of dividend increases following acquisitions to continue. With industrial real estate prices up significantly and TRNO’s highly attractive acquisition vintage profile, we expect management to continue to harvest gains in 2016 and recycle capital. To date in 2016, TRNO has booked some $7.14mln in gains on $22.5mln of sales with an acquisitions cost of $16.1mln, a healthy +40.19% on a 7.05% investment CAGR. As TRNO has demonstrated in the past, it is well adept at timing the market, both on the acquisition and financing front. The future remains bright for TRNO and we continue to favor the industrial REIT operators formed in 2010 and later, as their portfolios are absent legacy assets and more attractive on a relative basis. As of September 2016, industrial RE price indices have increased 8.1% Y/Y, trailing only multifamily which is up 13.47% for the same period. We’re maintaining our BUY rating and increasing our $28.00 price target to $29.00. “
