It is a great company. There is not necessarily a grocery component in their centers. It is trading on parity with net asset value. It has the lowest earnings growth amongst its peers and so he is not looking to own this stock today. The yield is solid, however.

Walmart is their anchor tenant, so Smart is rock-solid stable. They collected a high percentage of rents during the pandemic. But prospects are limited. SRU may see only 1-2% rent growth when new space comes to market, far below to peers of 5-10% like Riocan. He prefers grocery-anchored shopping centres, like First Capital REIT.

Many minefields in REITs now, but SRU is a safe bet. It hold more retail. He'd avoid office space more than retail, though retail will come back after Covid. SRU has good liquidity. Walmart is 26% of their net operating income. SRU's occupancy remains in the mid/high-90s in good locations which could be redeveloped if retail wanes later. SRU is solid and in a good spot for the recovery.

Focus on Walmart and adjacent retail. Likes Walmart, but the adjacent retail faces headwinds. Management team says better growth in residential than in retail. She'd take this cue and invest in companies that already have residential exposure. Talk of distribution cut.

He likes this retail REIT. It is trading at a 25-30% discount to NAV but Wal-Mart is the anchor tenant to 70% of their properties. 9% yield. The anchor tenant drives some of the traffic to the other stores. Post-vaccine, these will come back. (Analysts’ price target is $25.13)

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.
