EPR Is A Unique Net Lease Brand I Would Like To Own
- It seems that many of the Triple Net REITs are chasing down the same properties and the lines are beginning to get blurred as it relates to brand differentiation.
- EPR does not contend directly with most Triple Net REITs and as a result, the company has been able to source new investments with less competition.
- ARCP's overhang has definitely impacted my decision to buy EPR and I would like to see some movement in ARCP’s share price before I gain more Net Lease exposure.
Intelligent REIT Investors Must Stay Focused On Dividend Dependability
- It's important to recognize that many investors purchase REIT shares for dependable and reliable income - a durable revenue stream that can be relied upon over a series of years.
- Capstead has had to endure a highly unpredictable dividend history, and investors have had to tolerate a very inconsistent revenue model.
- Reinvesting dividends can allow you to "super-size" your portfolio - something like owning shares in a free ATM machine.
It's A Prime Time To Buy Ashford Prime
- Ashford Trust continues to hold an approximately 19% interest in Ashford Prime, so growth and positive performance from Ashford Prime will be realized by Trust investors through that ownership position.
- Ashford Trust investors hold the shares of AHP they received in the spin-off, then they will benefit from any positive performance at Prime.
- Ashford Prime seems attractive, since listing last November the shares have fallen by around 28% to a close of $15.14.
Should An Intelligent REIT Investor Buy CapStead Mortgage?
- The risk that Capstead takes on their books is spread risk - the risk that ARM spreads will change and impact book value.
- Given my knowledge of the mREIT sector, I believe that CapStead is a speculative operation and based upon the earnings history, the dividend record has been considerably volatile.
- CapStead’s common dividend yield of 10.48% does not compensate for the higher risk that impedes the dependability of the dividend stream.
Can Brixmor Get Shelf Space Like Tony The Tiger?
- One of the key differentiators for Brixmor is the opportunity to capitalize on the company’s significant near-term lease rollover by stepping up below market rents.
- For Brixmor, it’s clear that this is an internal growth story. The investment thesis is to continue to deliver NOI growth without significant capital.
- This is a more speculative bet than I generally recommend; however, I believe that the management team has the experience to move the needle and get more shelf space.
Is Equity Residential A Fortress REIT Brand To Buy Now?
- Sam Zell insists that every investor “should dig deeper into a company before investing. It’s not enough to know sales and profit margins”.
- I do not see a “margin of safety” in Equity Residential.
- As a value investor, my primary goal is to preserve capital, and I’ll wait on a better day to own EQR.
Blackstone's Private Equity Model Is Hitting All Cylinders
- Since January 2009, Blackstone has returned over 948%.
- Blackstone has a tremendous amount of "dry powder" available to employ that will drive growth and earnings.
- During the fourth quarter of 2013, Blackstone attracted gross asset inflows totaling $17 billion and $60 billion for the year.
How Does An Intelligent Investor Navigate Mortgage REIT Risk?
- My view of a dividend champion has been consistent and that definition is based upon the premise of durable dividend payments.
- Finding an attractive dividend-paying stock is just one part of the puzzle, buying them is another.
- Mortgage REITs are playing an important role in helping provide capital for commercial and residential real estate in the recovery ahead.
Sam Zell Owns Equity Lifestyle, Should I?
- When compared with the broader Multifamily sector, ELS has outperformed the larger peer group based on historic Same Store NOI growth.
- ELS has a much better dividend growth record with average 3-year dividend growth of 17% and average 5-year dividend growth of 24%.
- I would recommend the ELS-C 6.75% Preferred Issue that’s trading at $23.62 with a current yield of 7.13%.
ARCenters - You Have To Think Anyway, So Why Not Think Big
- ARCP intends to unlock value by creating a leading shopping center REIT via a strategic spinoff.
- ARCP intends to focus ARCP’s strategy as a pure-play net lease REIT.
- ARCP intends to improve credit profile.
Maybe This Triple Net REIT Will Get Your Spirits Up
- Since listing on September 2012, Spirit’s shares have increased by approximately 34.4%.
- Over the last 90 days, most REITs have outperformed and Spirit’s shares have climbed by around 7.2% during that time period.
- Spirit closed at $10.59 with a current dividend yield of 6.28%.
A Value Investor Explains Why He Owns Digital Realty
- Value investors have learned over time that the way to win the game is to focus on both price and value – that is, paying less.
- As I have watched all of the drama unfolding with Digital (over the course of months), I have never questioned the company’s fundamentals.
- Digital’s fourth quarter results exceeded expectations and the 10%+ beat consensus in the latest quarter ($1.26/share vs. $1.14/share) and that should propel momentum during the year.
Tanger Outlets: Nobody Does It Better
- In the new age of retailing, it’s becoming quite clear that the most sustainable companies will have to be experts in all business lines – full price, discount, and e-commerce.
- Although Tanger is not the largest mall REIT based on size, the company does flex considerable muscle when it comes to its “fortress” balance sheet.
- I’m sticking with my “sleep well at night” BUY price of $32.00.
Super-Size Your Dividend Portfolio With More ROIC
- A dividend increase represents a commitment by a company that its shareholders are important, and the message is plain and simple: you can count on the income.
- Oftentimes, insiders also have insight into marketing, improving industry conditions, and the potential for future financial transactions that may improve the health of the business.
- My initial acquisition price was $13.60 per share, and I have been pleased with the results – shares are up around 9.9% (closed at $14.98).
