 8.4   Overall REITRating™ Score

REITRating is REITNote's Real Estate Investment Trust industry-specific rating and ranking system. The REIT’s score for each analysis is out of ten points, with ten being the best score and zero being the worst. A score of zero can be assigned if the REIT does not meet the criteria for that specific analysis. N/A is assigned if insufficient data is available for a particular analysis. Our REITRating logic is continuously improving, so a REIT’s rating and ranking may change over time. Important Note: REITRating is not a predictor of a REIT’s future performance, it is an evaluation of its past results. Additionally, the REITRating system is for informational purposes only and does not represent financial or investment advice or a recommendation of which REITs to acquire. Learn more.

Funds From Operations (FFO)

Dividend to FFO & AFFO Payout Ratio
REITNotes' Dividend to FFO Payout Ratio graph is based on the REIT's Funds From Operation (FFO) per diluted share informed in the REIT’s Quarterly Earning Reports and its announced dividend per diluted share. For some REITs, we also display the Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO), Core FFO, Normalized FFO (NFFO), Modified FFO (MFFO), Operating FFO as provided by the REIT. REITNotes calculates the payout ratio by dividing the dividend value paid during the current quarter by the FFO declared in the previous Quarter. E.g., we divide the dividend value paid in Q3 by the FFO reported in Q2. This is because although paid in Q3, the dividend value is usually declared during the previous quarter.
FFO is a non-GAAP measure recognized by the SEC and provided by the REITs as a supplemental measure of their operating performance. FFO is not meant to be an indicator of the REIT’s capacity to pay current or future dividends nor to be a substitute to the REIT's cash flow from operations. It is recommended to check the REIT's website, Earning Reports and dividend announcements for the latest and updated information.

Stock Price to FFO & AFFO Multiples (TTM)
REITNotes' Price to FFO (P/FFO) Multiples graph is calculated by dividing the REIT’s closing stock price for the day by the Trailing Twelve Month (TTM) Funds from Operations (FFO). For some REITs we also display the Price-to-Adjusted Funds From Operations (P/AFFO), Price-to-Core FFO (P/CFFO), Price-to-Normalized FFO (P/NFFO), Price-to-Modified FFO (P/MFFO), Price-to-Operating (P/FFO), depending on the data provided in the REIT’s Quarterly Earning Reports.

As you may be familiar with, the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) is a useful tool for investors to gauge the market's valuation of a company’s stock price. The price-to-FFO ratio (or multiple) is a comparable measure used in the REIT industry that compares the REIT’s stock price to its FFO per share instead of its earnings per share (EPS).
