Owned this for 6 years, but couldn't understand why the 8.2% yield was so high. If there's a bump (a bad earnings report), he worries what would protect this. He means 120% in over-distributing. Great properties in eastern Ontario and Quebec, but it's hard for them to grow.

He recently got out about three months ago. They bought is in 2012 at much lower levels. Their assets are focused in Eastern Ontario and Quebec. He feels they are over distributing -- over 100% payout. That is okay for while, but it is not sustainable. Industry wide payouts are down to 80%. Their properties are getting better with some recent selling of non-core assets. They yield may be vulnerable. He would be a seller.

REIT that specializes in eastern Ontario and Quebec. He initiated the position in 2010. When you do the math he made 13.5% annualized. Problem is they are over distributing. They got to a point f exhaustion. It is a great exit point.

He used to own this. It had B- level properties instead of A-. You can hold this, but other REITs perform better. A sleepy company with OK assets but will move sideways. Collect the dividend only.

Chart hasn’t moved. Stock is mistreated because not institutionally owned. Management is good, and are upgrading their portfolio. Debt’s in a good position. He doesn’t expect anything more than the yield. Consistent business. Retail/office in Quebec and Ontario, but he can look through this because it’s so cheap.

(A Top Pick June 1/17, Up 13%) He's held this for 7 years. It owns properties in Quebec and their properties cross retail, light industrial and commercial. Good management, but has an issue getting its story out. They're repositioning by selling poorly performing properties. It's still small cap which he seldom buys, but performs consistently with little volatility. A long-time hold.

He likes this company although it has retraced in price somewhat. If you are not worried about Quebec separating, the 9.5% yield is great. It has about 75 properties. As a more senior REIT, they are able to acquire debt at much lower rates. The dividend is not at risk. He would buy it on this dip. Yield 9.5%.

A small, mid-cap REIT that he has owned for quite a long time. It has given him an 8%-9% distribution. This has not moved for 3-4 years. They basically buy assets in Eastern Ontario and Québec. Have had vacancy issues and are repositioning their portfolio by selling down a lot of retail properties and focusing on industrials. Dividend yield of 9.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $4.65.)

An investment in this is an investment in Québec, so you have to be favourable to the Québec marketplace, which he is. One of the struggles he has with this is that when you are a small REIT, you can have high debts or a high yield ratio. In this case, it has both. However, they know the real estate market very well. If you think the Québec economy is going to continue to improve, this is a good way to do it. Dividend yield of 8.6%.

(Market Call Minute.) A small cap in Quebec. Highly levered, high payout. It all comes under your view on the Quebec economy. He is on the sidelines.

An entire Quebec play. 70% debt, so very highly levered, and also has a high payout ratio. He doesn’t like it for those reasons.

(A Top Pick March 31/15. Down 6.46%.) Real estate focused on Eastern Ontario and Québec. Their active strategy is to upgrade their portfolio and sell non-core assets. The biggest issue is that they are still over levered. Fantastic yield of 9%-10%.

A Québec focused REIT. Payout ratio and debt are a little high. He really likes the way they really own their Québec market. If you believe in Québec, this is a good name to invest in. Dividend yield of 10%.
