One of the nation's most visible single-family rental plays, American Homes 4 Rent (AMH), is seeing its fortunes change, potentially for the worse. Per a report at Bloomberg:

American Homes 4 Rent yesterday fired a group of workers, with a focus on acquisition and construction staff, after the housing landlord reported a fiscal second-quarter loss, according to a person with knowledge of the terminations.

The company, owner of almost 20,000 single-family homes, has cut about 15 percent of its workforce this year, including an earlier round of terminations before its initial public offering last month, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

AMH went public on August 1, earlier this year.
