Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

The big picture is a little bit bearish.  There is a look to this stock that it is heading for $15.  If it breaks the bigger picture downtrend it will be positive.

PAST TOP PICK
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

(A Top Pick Oct 11/16. Up 1.31%.) This gain is primarily due to the distribution. The capital value is off about 8%-9%, and the distribution has basically put you flat. The REIT is a very cheap now. They had some technical problems which are now behind them.

TOP PICK
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

Had a ratings issue with Moody’s, but have been dealing with that. They cut back the pay-out unnecessarily, but as a sot to the rating agency. As things get going again, this is a very, very cheap REIT. On top of that, Québec, is really humming on all cylinders. They are making excellent progress in reducing unreleased space to bring its occupancy level to the average for the industry. Dividend yield of 8.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $14.)

They had an 11% yield, which they cut to 8.5%.  The stock does not have a good trend line.  Rate increases are not positive for them.  You have to have pretty strong growth.  It is shopping centers in Quebec. The balance sheet is better, but still not great.

Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

They own strip malls and were hit by the Target bankruptcy.  They did a dilutive equity issue.  Their biggest risk now is being downgraded by credit agencies.  It makes it harder to get funding.  It is no longer a growth REIT, but just trying to fix a problem.  Stay away as it will be problematic over the next couple of quarters.  The yield says there is a pending distribution cut coming.

He would be a little concerned with this REIT because the balance sheet is stretched. They’ve got a lot of debt. If you think inflation rates are going to creep a little higher, you want to have a relatively strong balance sheet. A lot of their net operating income tends to be focused in Québec, and he has seen NOI (net operating income) growth, which tends to overhang the stock, especially when you marry it with how heavily indebted it is. Management had gone on an acquisition spree in the last 5 years and leveraged up the balance sheet.

COMMENT
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

(Market Call Minute.) This is not for the faint of heart. It is very, very cheap. They had negative AFFO growth in the last quarter. Their occupancy isn’t bad. They are probably going to cut their distribution by 25%. If they do, the stock will probably rally on that. This is one you could be poking around with at these levels.

TOP PICK
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

Trading at 60% of its BV and has a payout that is covered. If they were to cut their dividend down to about 8%, a sustainable rate, he thinks the stock would take off. Dividend yield of 11%. (Analysts’ price target is $14.)

COMMENT

Has a really high yield. Payout ratio is well over 100%. They either have to raise equity, which they can’t do, sell assets, or cut the dividend which they might as well do as the market is assuming they are going to.

COMMENT
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

Not one of his favourites. They had done historically well of growing through development. It was family owned, which spent a lot of money buying properties, and then went on a huge acquisition binge a few years ago. As a result, they probably overpaid. Tried to diversify out of Québec. Operationally, things haven’t gone their way. You probably have better risk/reward in other REITs. Dividend yield of 11%+, which would worry him.

HOLD
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

The issue is Target walking away from 6 of the properties. Canadian Tire took 2, 2 are going to be carved up to get 35% more rent in 2018, and 2 others haven’t been figured out yet. Dividend coverage has dropped by about 95%. Management is going to hold the dividend because, as stores get rejigged they’ll come back and the dividend coverage by the end of 2018 will be 105%, which they can maintain. He believes that, so is nibbling at it. Dividend yield of 11.3%.

There are a lot of problems with this REIT. Their numbers came out and they missed badly. They basically own real estate mostly in Québec, and some Target stores that are repositioning. Their debt profile is soft, being BBB low. There is a good chance that they get downgraded to BB high which means they have to go for secured financing. Their execution has been poor.

A Québec based REIT that has expanded into parts of the Maritimes and Ontario. They went on a buying spree and their debt levels went up. The investment community knew they had to raise rates. They had to raise equity, probably at lower prices than what they actually cared to. Distribution is a little high and the payout ratio is a little high, so he doesn’t own this.

Their NOI dropped 3.7% in Q3. He models less than 1% growth over the next couple of years, versus its peers which are in a 2.5%. They have an all-in payout ratio of 114%. Making asset sales to bring down their balance sheet, which is good. Feels the fundamentals of Québec and Ontario are slightly better than what they have been. Trading at 11X. Probably not a bad place to be picking away, but it is not your highest quality REIT.

TOP PICK
Cominar Real Estate Inv Tr (CUF.UN-T)

Feels the 3 top picks have probably lagged the market unfairly. He sees an improving Québec economy, and this is the largest landlord in Québec. Management has gone through some decisions over the last 2 years that were not great, when they tried to grow too aggressively. However, they have said they are done and are now focusing internally on the company. Payout ratio is a little high, but there is some visibility in the future leases that are signed but not yet economically contributing to the income statement. If you have a 3-year hold, buying in the $14 range is going to give you a very solid yield, and it will skate through over the next couple of years. Dividend yield of 10%. (Analysts’ price target is $15.)
