NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Host Hotels & Resorts  (HST) reported better-than-expected results for the 2016 third quarter on Wednesday.

Before the opening bell, the Bethesda, MD-based hotel real estate investment trust posted adjusted funds from operations of 37 cents per diluted share, topping analysts' estimates of 35 cents per share, according to FactSet.

Total revenue for the period was $1.30 billion, higher than analysts' forecasts of $1.29 billion.

The company sees 2016 funds from operations between $1.64 and $1.66. Analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for full-year FFO of $1.62 per share.

Funds from operations is a key metric in the REIT industry, which takes net income and adds back items such as depreciation and amortization.

Shares of Host Hotels closed lower on Tuesday.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Buy" rating with a score of B- on the stock.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
