Short seller targets Healthcare Trust of America over earnings concerns

HTA website
Taken from its website, these are properties held in the Healthcare Trust of America portfolio.

Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. HTA, -1.19% is a real estate investment trust with a track record of consistent returns in a growth industry with demographics working in its favor. The stock has an “overweight” rating by analysts, according to the FactSet-compiled consensus. And in May, it got a little plug from MarketWatch when an analyst we interviewed noted it on his “buy” list.

But in June, HTA became the target of a short seller – an investor who’s identified an intrinsic flaw with a company that means its stock is likely to fall.
