I am so so tempted to buy SMTA today @ 19.556% dividend yield. The price also seems to be going up also. Good idea? Bad idea?- Spareideas - 2019-04-15 23:01:04 PDT

What’s on your mind?

With #SMTA selling all its portfolio to Hospitality Properties Trust #HPT for $2.4 billion in total cash consideration what does that mean for us investor holding the shares? Will we get a huge dividend payday? Will or shares be transferred to #HPT? - Fyryr - 2019-06-07 18:41:53 PDT

#SMTA out of 3 quarters since it was spinned-off from #SRC, has had two very bad quarters of dividends to funds-from-operations and adjusted-funds-from-operations payout rates, so I’m honestly not surprised by this sale. - Bob_knows - 2019-06-07 20:25:59 PDT

As a shareholder of Spirit Realty Capital, I received shares of Spirit MTA REIT when SRC spun it off last year. I believe it was 1 share of SMTA for every 10 shares that I owned of SRC or something like that, I don't recall specifics. Either way, I received SMTA's and SRC's dividend payment this week, SRC seems to be holding its stock price similar or close to were it was during the spin-off, while SMTA is currently trading below. - 777i - 2019-04-16 21:03:16 PDT

Hi Spareideas, you may want to analyze SMTA more before buying into a 19% dividend yield. I haven't done my research on SMTA but something for you to look at is the companies ability to sustain that level of payout. Is it generating sufficient earnings to cover that, and by how much? Or is it worth for the company to sustain that dividend level if its stock price is trading so low? SMTA stock price is trading at 40% below its 52 week high, there must be a reason for that. So I recommend further investigation into this REIT. Also if this stock price trend continues you may not be able to recover your initial investment even when you account for the dividend received. What you refer to as the stock going up, is not an upward trend, in my opinion, it is just doing slightly better than a couple of days ago. Anyways these are just some question which you should think about before you jump on a high-yield dividend stock like this. Best wishes! - wolfman82 - 2019-04-15 23:31:30 PDT
