I recently initiated a position in FRT at $127.90.

I've been wanting to increase my exposure to real estate and a recent dip in FRT shares gave me an opportunity to buy shares near my fair value estimate.

I don't think that FRT is a screaming bargain here, by any means, but it is a dividend aristocrat and I feel comfortable holding shares for the long term.

Last week, I wrote a piece about my decision to trim my overweight United Parcel Services (UPS) position due to concerns of significant disruption and potential secular headwinds arising in the logistics space.
