We Bought More Of The Plunging American Tower

Jan. 15, 2022 2:00 PM ETAmerican Tower Corporation (AMT)CCI, SBAC214 Comments

Summary

  • AMT is an excellent REIT. Massive growth in AFFO per share throughout the last decade demonstrates the consistent strength of their business model.
  • In 2021, they continued to deliver excellent results. Expect 2022 to be another good year.
  • The market continues to drop tech-focused REITs like American Tower as investors focus on REITs with pathetic AFFO growth.

When Seeking Alpha reached a deal with Getty Images for the images at the start of articles, it probably seemed like I wouldn't be able to find any cat memes. Wrong. Not quite as wrong as investors who doubt tower REITs, but still wrong.

The #1 REIT Service For Those Targeting Strong Total Returns
You want to be on The REIT Forum because it is the #1 REIT research service on Seeking Alpha measured by returns. Period. See our Tipranks page. How did we get there? We did a better job of managing risk and discovering opportunities. We didn’t jump into trashy high-yield equity REITs with the rest of the crowd. We cover securities for trading and securities for the buy-and-hold investor. We are clear about the difference and that enabled us to perform better since inception and better in 2020.


Securities for the buy-and-hold investor generally carry much lower risk. If we enter a high-risk position, we plan to capitalize on a change in the valuation. We monitor those positions very carefully, rather than hoping everything turns out well over the next several years. That’s why we have so few losses in our investing.


We post our portfolio for you. You also get real-time alerts on every trade we place. Our reasoning for placing a trade is explained in clear English. You can even see the exact trades with the images we include from our stock accounts. We don’t offer you several different “portfolios”, instead, we show you exactly what we own, when we bought it, and how we are doing in that position. We make it simple for investors to follow our strategy.


You’ll find several reports on The REIT Forum that don’t get posted to the public side of Seeking Alpha. Many of our public reports are dramatically reduced versions of subscriber articles. If you enjoy our public articles, you’ll love the content we keep for subscribers.


Disclosure: I/we have a beneficial long position in the shares of AMT, CCI, SBAC either through stock ownership, options, or other derivatives. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
