I don’t think #CBL has thrown in the towel, and they will be able to transition into a smaller REIT with fewer but better mall properties. - Bob_knows - 2019-08-04 14:28:17 PDT

With CBL cutting its dividend payments, it is saving itself millions which can go towards paying down interest payments and the principle in debts. This is a good move for CBL to bounce back. - Paul_R_investor - 2019-06-17 20:20:24 PDT

#CBL’s mall occupancy level for 2018 was 92%, down from a high of 95% in 2014 & 2013 and below the levels of 2008 (93%) and 2007 (94%). CBL continues to work to turn its ship around, in 2018 it closed $100 million in dispositions, and so far in 2019, it has closed another $51 million in dispositions. This should help the company get rid of poor performing malls, and reinvest in new and existing properties. - Kev B - 2019-06-01 15:47:37 PDT

How can CBL have missed so bad the signs in a changing retail industry? Where there not potential metrics signs over 15, 10 years ago which would have given some indications that changes needed to be made in their business model? Now it’s much harder for them to try and make all these asset changes and repositioning, pity. - Rken - 2019-04-17 17:22:08 PDT

Supposedly #CBL was going to pay dividends to the holder of common stocks during Q1 and Q2 of 2019, and then halt payment of its common share dividends to put cash aside for its lawsuit settlement. But I have not seen any Q2 2019 dividend payment to the common stock shareholder, what is going on? Last payment I saw was in March/April. - Mrinvesta - 2019-08-25 12:03:27 PDT

I was ok with holding on to my #CBL shares as long as it was paying dividends. My thought was that I would just wait it out and collect dividends, and not sell since I would lose a lot compared to what I paid. But now with the company cutting dividends, I feel like this will be a stock sitting in the corner of my portfolio just slowly going to zero. - Mrinvesta - 2019-04-17 18:45:50 PDT

I believe it will, but maybe I am too optimistic. Despite their share prices dropping, they are still consistent dividend payers. - deadtom - 2019-04-16 23:18:58 PDT

#CBL's stock price is moving up this week post its earnings reports, even though it wasn't great it signals some hope. - Atopp - 2019-05-03 12:51:05 PDT

CBL Q1 report gave me some mixed feelings, as I would like to be hopeful that the company still has a fighting chance. Some of the positives they called out 1) "CBL has made tremendous progress on its anchor replacement program, with nearly two dozen anchor replacements recently opened or pending (complete list follows). 2) "Portfolio occupancy increased 20 basis points to 91.3% as of March 31, 2019, compared with 91.1% as of March 31, 2018." 3) "Same-center mall occupancy was 89.7% as of March 31, 2019, a 20 basis point improvement compared with 89.5% as of March 31, 2018." 4) "Year-to-date, CBL has completed gross asset sales totaling $51 million." Some of the neutral news was: "Same-center sales per square foot for the stabilized mall portfolio for the twelve-months ended March 31, 2019, of $377 per square foot were flat compared with the prior-year period." but not bad in my opinion considering everything they are trying to turnaround. Some of the negative news (but expected, once again with the transition) was" 1)"FFO per diluted share, as adjusted, was $0.30 for the first quarter 2019, compared with $0.42 per share for the first quarter of 2018." 2) "Total Portfolio Same-center NOI declined 5.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2019." In my opinion, the company is showing some positive signs that it can become a smaller version of itself yet stable, while others may argue that these change & dispositions may not be fast enough results. Either way, I wouldn't buy CBL stocks based on this earnings report and news. - Kev B - 2019-05-01 03:57:53 PDT

I don't think CBL has ever been so close to hitting the $1 per share mark ($1.04 lowest of the day), is such a low share price warranted for CBL? I know the situation is bad for the company, but I would want to figure out what is a fair price for its poor conditions, and what is market overreaction. - LLNN - 2019-04-22 22:31:48 PDT

Actually, #CBL has already reduced its dividend payments at least twice in the last years and has announced that it will suspend its common dividend payments for 2 quarters. Also once they suspend the dividends I'm not confident they will start paying dividends again after two months (I would happily be wrong), but with their stock price trading so low, I don't see why they would be encouraged to bring back the dividends or bring it back at $0.075 per share again. - wolfman82 - 2019-04-16 23:32:26 PDT
