Terreno Realty Corp. (NYSE:TRNO) had its target price increased by stock analysts at National Securities from $24.50 to $28.00 in a report released on Thursday. The brokerage currently has a “buy” rating on the stock. National Securities’ price target suggests a potential upside of 6.63% from the company’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “TRNO 3Q16 Update: TRNO reported 3Q16 funds from operations (“AFFO”) of $9.92mln, +25.27% Q/Q and +23.59% Y/Y on $27.10mln of revenue, +5.0% Q/Q and +11.4% Y/Y. The increase in revenue and both FFO measures are attributable to TRNO’s continued robust portfolio growth, having added 1.147mln square feet for the TTM period, +10.9%, with a portfolio that as of 9/30/16 stood at 11,679,095. 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 1mln 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 $6.4mln in gains on $22.5mln of sales with an acquisitions cost of $16.1mln, a healthy +39.75% on a 7% investment CAGR. As TRNO has demonstrated in the past, it is well adept at timing the market, both on the acquisition and financing front, placing a $50mln 10-year note at 3.99% fixed on 7/7/16, a move saving them some $415k in annual interest, had they placed that same note today. 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 $24.50 price target to $28.00. “
