Don’t Look For a Rebound In RCS Capital Anytime Soon (RCAP)
Notes: RCS Capital’s earnings estimates continue to be slashed month after month (down 11%+ in three months for 2015), but they’ve still found a way to disappoint in recent quarters. January selling agreements were down to 1,132 vs 1,151 in January 2014. Overall demand for non-traded REITS fell 7.6% for the company in 2014 as accounting issues were revealed at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP had previously had a deal to sell Cole Capital to RCAP). More than 12.2M shares are currently sold short (70M+ shares outstanding).
