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.

Owns mainly big box centres leased to Walmart. Doesn't own it because the core portfolio generates only 0-1% earnings growth a year. Future development is already built into the stock. Raise dividend about 1-2% a year. Gains in next few years should fund the distribution in the next few years.

This is a final name. He sees them growing at 3.6% rate. Cheap enough at 15.2 times 2019. Trading in line with the REIT universe. Doing very well in occupancy. Dividend is safe. It was $28 in the last 12 months. You can probably get it at a lower price.

(A Top Pick Apr 05/18, Up 25%) An example of a name in retail. Around 60% Ontario and the rest around the country. Now growth might be muted. He would still buy it for the yield.
