Apartment Income REIT Sees Large Jump in Occupancy in Q3; Announces Several Large Dispositions

Kevin Brown, CFA Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Kevin Brown, CFA |

No-moat Apartment Income REIT reported third-quarter results that were ahead of our expectations, though we don’t anticipate any material changes to our $47.50 fair value estimate. Same-store occupancy improved 120 basis points sequentially, well ahead of our estimate of a 50-basis-point increase over the second quarter. Still, we assume that occupancy will eventually reach 97.4%, so the large occupancy gain probably means higher revenue for 2021 and 2022 but doesn't change our long-term outlook. Same-store rate growth was up 2.2% year over year, slightly ahead of our estimate of 1.1% growth. Combined, AIRC produced same-store revenue growth of 6.0% in the third quarter. Meanwhile, same-store operating expenses fell 0.6% due to lower payroll and advertising costs, leading to same-store net operating income growth of 7.9%, slightly ahead of our estimate of 5.1% growth. As a result, AIRC reported pro forma funds from operations of $0.56 in the third quarter, $0.04 above the second quarter.
