HCP, Inc. is an independent hybrid real estate investment trust. The fund invests in real estate markets of the United States.

Currently there are 3 analysts who rate HCP a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates HCP as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. Get the full HCP Ratings Report now.
