Lots of GTA multi-use with commercial too. With REIT that have commercial exposure, it's hard to see what they are doing. He would prefer warehouse REITs or grocery anchored REITs.

It is safe in terms of distribution. They have exposure to Walmart, so in terms of cash flow it is safe, however they have zero growth. They have quite a bit of leasing to do. They have a good management team and some exciting developments. (Analysts’ price target is $20.75)

A lot of investors were agnostic about what area of real estate to get into before the pandemic but now they are getting more selective. Even within retail they are picky. He would prefer this one to other retail REITs. They can capture some of the upside. It is necessary that we can maintain these re-openings for this to work.

Shopping-center REIT focused on Wal-Marts, who will continue to be a winner coming out of this. The only concern would be in-line tenants like fashion. They have some interesting developments. There is some talent there. But you are better off owning those sectors that will do well coming out of this.

REITs have been reporting that 60-80% of renters with small businesses did not require rent assistance last month. That worries him as we are really only one month into the lock downs. Absent any further government relief the real estate asset classes he prefers holding are apartment buildings and US industrial warehousing.

Walmart is the anchor. Issue is most of future growth is going to come from transactional type deals such as condos, storage, seniors housing. Walmart portfolio of stores isn't generating any growth, and the street won't give them credit for the transactional gains. Lots in the pipeline. Valuation is fair. Dividend is safe and it grows by 1-2% every year.

Smart builds malls and has survived e-commerce's dominance. Has upside potential of 50%. It has resistance at $35. If things get ugly this will fall to $28. Overall, it's an okay stock.

Real Estate is a long term asset and you should look to hold it for the compounding benefit. They have great properties that generate good cash flow with some growth. Walmart is their largest tenant and some will come up for renewal soon -- a little worrying to him.

A defensive name, that is a Walmart anchored assembly. It’s recession resistant, with an improving balanced sheets. Trades below its peers but has similar growth to its retail peers. It’s also probably more protected from Amazon.

(A Top Pick Jul 31/18, Up 14%) One of the better REITs he has recommended. Walmart is the anchor for this holding -- a very strong tenant. They have new development in Northern Toronto, where condos are being built with 14% ROIs. Great management that continues to add value. Not an overly complicated REIT -- he likes that.

They hold the supercentre malls in the suburbs anchored by Walmart. A good stock that pays a decent dividend. But he isn't super bullish, because Amazon will continue to take share of retail. Retailers will expand online and therefore pressure down retail rents.
