#AFIN surprised me with their strong recovery and good earnings. Plus, you have to love their 200.01% dividend payment increase. - deadtom - 2021-03-10 21:17:05 PDT

While we are comparing Net lease commercial REITs here is EPRT for the comparison. A REIT which is not spoken about nearly as much as the others, but a great one none the less. In fact, has a current REIT Rating of 9/10.

How do you think #ESRT office properties compare to others in the region? Does the Empire State building still draw a high occupancy demand for higher sq foot rent? The building is old, and not all glass so I wonder if it makes for interesting office space. - Billy123 - 2020-04-11 19:31:57 PDT

#EPRT has a good REITRating score of 8.0, a portfolio of 789 properties, and a dividend-to-AFFO of 81%. Looks pretty good. My only concern is the company’s short life span of 3 years. - Kyuie - 2019-12-10 19:33:39 PDT

SL Green Realty Corp #SLG which is Manhattan’s largest office landlord, declared they are now becoming monthly instead of quarterly!! This is awesome news. They also declared a monthly dividend of $0.295 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on April 15, 2020 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 31, 2020. Here is a quote from their press release: “We endeavor to reward our shareholders with a consistent dividend while recognizing the need to maximize liquidity,” said Matt DiLiberto, Chief Financial Officer of SL Green. “Modifying our dividend policy from quarterly payments to monthly payments will allow us to better match our distributions to the operating cash flow we recognize in this current market environment.” - CapitalKing - 2020-04-07 00:46:53 PDT

Market is all over the place today! Some REITs continue to go even higher which worries me while other REITs are in the red. Market is pessimistic today but imagine it will turn around again a couple of times this week. - Billy123 - 2019-09-03 09:11:27 PDT

Earlier in the week I mentioned I was planning on buying #PLD & #EGP as I see them as long term value-added stocks. This Friday I bought both of them, the price may drop some in following weeks month, but long term I see it going much higher. - Kev B - 2019-08-31 14:18:56 PDT

#EPR - Entertainment Properties Trust, Inc. Although I already acquired EPR at a much lower price, I still believe this REIT is undervalued compared to other REITs and with an P/AFFO of 13.5x. I like that EPR pays dividends monthly and has grown its dividend value by 8.4% over the last 3 years. This is smaller than the other REITs on my current list but still attractive. It also has a good dividend yield of 5.8%. I like the diversification of EPR’s portfolio ( 46% entertainment, 33% recreation, 18% education, and 3% others) which is different from other REITs. In total it has 417 locations across 43 states and Canada, with over 250 tenants. Its AFFO payout ratios have been trending up lately which I don’t like, it when from 58% in Q2 2018 to 83% in Q2 2019, although in 2015 & 2016 it was in the 80-85% ratios also. Its AFFO declined 28% in Q2 2019 compared to Q2 2018, which may also be holding its current stock price down. On the positive side, EPR has a well-laddered debt maturity schedule with no debt maturing until 2022. - Kev B - 2019-08-27 23:18:58 PDT

#BDN - Brandywine Realty Trust, has a RR overall score of 8.2, from my current list it is probably one of the few REITs which has a stock price which is declining steadily since 2018, and currently trading at only 10 P/FFO. With this level of P/FFO there is plenty of room for valuation of the stock if the market gains the confidence of the stock. With the stock price declining today another 1.33%. The current dividend is at ~ 5.386%. However, dividend payment values have increased by about 22% over the last 3 years, the dividend/payout ratio is still at 50%, and its been paying consistently it for over 21 years. The avg. coverage ratio is 4.45 although last years was better at 5.1. The company has only grown its assets total value by about 1.9% YoY. BDN tenants come from a diversified set of industries with its top 20 tenants representing 32.6% of its total annualized rent. Its largest tenants are IBM, Inc, Comcast Corporation, FMC Corp, Pepper Hamilton LLP, CSL Behring, LLC, and other like Northrop Grumman Corp, KPMG, LLP, and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. One concern for me is that in 2020 19% of its total debt will reach maturity, and in 2023 26.4%, and in 2024, 11.8%, I would hope BDN would have a more spread out debt maturity schedule. - Kev B - 2019-08-27 22:43:03 PDT

#PLD - Prologis, Inc, I’m adding this industrial REIT to my buy list. Some of the things I like about it are that is has a RR overall rating of 9.4, and Credit Ratings of A-/A3. Its RR Dividend Payment Growth score is 10, due to its 23% dividend value growth over the last three years. The dividend yield is only 2.56% currently, but in 20-30 years, I would expect it to pay attractive dividend yields on my current investments. PLD has been paying dividends for over 21 years, 21 being the time horizon I’m looking at, but it may be much longer than that. PLD has over 3,770 building and 5,100 customers, across 19 countries, with 96.8% al occupancy. PLD has high liquidity in its balance sheet, and an average coverage ratio of 12.63 according to my analysis. The companies customers are well-diversified across industries, and the top 25 customers represent 19% of the net effective rent of PLD. The company also has an efficient G&A expense ratio compared to its revenues. With eCommerce and delivery services increasing, I believe PLD has additional space to grow for years to come. - Kev B - 2019-08-27 22:05:27 PDT

#EGP - EastGroup Properties, Inc.this industrial REIT (87% comprised of business distribution buildings) has been around for a long time (50 years), the dividend is only 2.34% currently but has increased 20% over the last three years. So since I’m investing with a long horizon, if the company keeps this discipline in the future, it will be worth more. EastGroup’s operating portfolio was 97.3% leased to approximately 1,500 tenants, with no single tenant accounting for more than approximately 1.1% of the Company’s income from real estate operations, which is a great stabilizing sign. The company has increased its FFO about 7.44% in the last two years and kept a 58-61% dividend to FFO payout ratio in the previous four years.
Eastgroup overall RR of 8.8, and the REIT is trading at P/FFO 25.7, which is higher than I like but inline with a more stable REIT like this one. - Kev B - 2019-08-27 21:41:35 PDT

Why is Innovative Industrial Properties (#IIPR) valuation so high? The stock is $112 dollars and its TTM AFFO is $1.89 per diluted share, this equal a P/AFFO ratio of 59 x. This is more than double the multiple of many top REITs. So what is going on here? - Rubyckube - 2019-08-21 20:44:27 PDT

I have my eyes on Essential Properties Realty Trust Inc. Symbol #EPRT. This REIT can be the next #O, #NNN, or #EPR, it is a young REIT (3 years old) which is growing fast, currently has 789 freestanding net lease properties. They improved their FFO & AFFO by a lot compared to last year, which has open additional space for dividends to grow. Properties are also 100% leased, EPRT grew Same-Store Contractual Cash Rents by 1.9%, reduced top 10 tenant concentration to 28.0. I want to lock them at a 4%+ div. yield within next week. - CapitalKing - 2019-08-20 23:23:35 PDT

Hi CapitalKing, I like your enthusiasm for Essential as I do share in it. However, a couple of things to be aware of is that 30.7% of its Cash ABR is still concentrated in their top ten tenants, and these tenants are not the strongest/top brands in the industry (no offense to any of the brands, they are still good), the list includes Captain D’s, Mister, Art Van, Couche-tard, AMC, Zips Car Wash, the Malvern School, Rstore, VASA Fitness, Town Sports, previous companies on the top 10 list were Latitude, 84 Lumber, Perkins Restaurant. I guess what I’m saying is that although EPRT is growing fast we need to make sure they are adding strong tenants with sound creditworthiness. Now some of the things I like about #EPRT is that it has an average of 14.5 weighted average lease term maturity (WALTM) which is better than all the other triple Net lease REITs, for example, #O Realty Income is 9.2 years, #VER Vereit is 8.7 years, #NNN is 11.4 years, the closest is #STOR Store with 14 years. It also has one of the healthiest AFFO to dividend payout ratios at 68%. Hope these insights complement the research you are doing. Thanks. - Kev B - 2019-08-21 00:19:24 PDT

REIT prices are just so high right now! Sorry Molly23da, it is hard to find REITs with the best prices at this moment. Maybe for a newcomer to the segment, they may seem like good dividend yields, but nothing compared to what we had in past years. - AI_AI - 2019-08-19 12:09:20 PDT

Hi AI_AI, some have been coming down. For example #APTS, #VNO, #IRM and #BPR all which I consider good companies. - Molly23da - 2019-10-19 11:00:23 PDT

Besides CyrusOne, Inc.’s price spike on Friday, the stock is still well priced. This REIT will likely continue raising dividends in the future, so even though #cone is only paying 3% it will be 4-5% within some years, not to mention further price appreciations. Best of luck! - Davestew - 2019-08-17 15:43:58 PDT
