  • An Office And Industrial REIT Positioned To Deliver Alpha - Chambers Street Properties [View article]
    Brad,

    Thanks for the opportunity to clarify that statement. My guess would be that CSG's price has been held down by an outflow of investors who owned it before it was listed. Many of these investors lost money with CSG so they are likely spreading negative sentiment in addition to selling their shares. I do believe, however, that the pace of outflow is slowing as CSG has been public for a while now so the demand for shares can now surpass the supply. With these more transitory trading elements beginning to fade, CSG should trade closer to its fundamental value.

    In terms of the office exposure, I echo your thoughts that it is not as strong as their industrial portfolio, but office REITs still trade at an average of 14.6X forward FFO. CSG's properties are arguably superior to some of their competitors so they really shouldn't be so discounted.

    Thanks for reading,
    Dane

  • Farmland Is The Next Big Thing In REITs [View article]
    WMhilger,

    I apologize if it was misleading in the article, but you have some of those facts reversed.

    The $360 annual rent/acre was for the initial portfolio which is valued at roughly 10,000 per acre. The more recent land bought around $2,000 per acre has substantially lower rent. I hope this clarifies.

    The 7000 acre figure you are quoting was their IPO acreage. FPI now has closer to 23,000.

    Thanks for reading

  • 3 Warnings For Those Seeking Demand Growth Stories [View article]
    David,

    I'm long VTR because the price has dropped more than it should have in my opinion. Back when it was over $80 it was likely overpriced, but now that its sold off to the low $60s, its a pretty good deal for bluechip quality. My bet is that a couple dividend raises will bring it back into favor.

  • Lexington Realty Trust Is Deeply Undervalued With 30% Upside Potential Within A Year [View article]
    reader,

    While I haven't heard any talk about it getting bought out, it seems plausible. A larger REIT with higher priced shares such as Realty Income (O) could potentially buy LXP accretively. ARCP would also be a potential buyer if it can get its market valuation up.

    jeff6780,

    Unfortunately I have no basis of information from which to judge RUF-U. Most of my work is in relative valuation within an exchange so it becomes difficult for me to comprehend a stock's value on a different exchange.

    While its operations are based in the US, I would have to analyze it like a foreign company which is a bit outside my wheelhouse.

    It sounds like you have a fair amount of conviction on this idea (based on the pm) so I would encourage you to consider writing about it. The SA editors are a great resource.

    alschroed,

    In my opinion, shareholders are more than compensated for the extra risk with an FFO yield that is nearly double that of O or NNN.

    the long tail of finance,

    Hmm, I'm not sure where bloomberg is getting their figure from, but FactSet consensus estimate for NTM FFO is $1.14, so with a current market price of ~$11.40 its at almost exactly 10XFFO. This $1.14 figure is also in-line with company guidance and LXP is on track to hit it.

    Hope this helps,

  • Armada Hoffler: Developing A Path To Outperformance [View article]
    Sajit,

    There are probably accounting based reasons for it being mostly return of capital with which I am not familiar. However, if your question is about the sustainability of the dividend, there is little reason to worry about that. AHH is easily earning their dividend in FFO and actually maintains a fairly conservative payout.

  • Assessing Health Care REIT Valuations Part 2 [View article]
    Factoids,

    Thank you for the very interesting article. While I appreciate the logical presentation, one step in the process gave me pause.

    The RRR methodology assumes that cap rates are directly related to riskiness of the asset. This, in my opinion, is not necessarily true.

    In recent months/years cap rates among health care properties have compressed significantly. This is NOT consequent to the assets somehow becoming less risky, but rather a product of bidding wars among too many REITs (public and non-traded) artificially raising acquisition prices.

    I would appreciate your thoughts on this matter and thanks again for the interesting article

    palladium,

    The purpose of paying down the credit facility IS future acquisitions. an undrawn facility provides the liquidity to move quickly on deals.

    doug,

    The preferred is cheaper for them than common equity so in my opinion it is unlikely to be called in the near term.
