He is a big fan and is overweight. It is a core holding. It is not a downtown REIT. Wal-Mart as a tenant attracts other tenants. It continues to have very high cash flow. Vaughan metropolitan area. A very skilled development team.

They are anchored by Wal-Mart. It is quite defensive. They tied themselves to Wal-Mart and not to Target. They outperformed the REIT index. They have good centers all around in the cities. They don’t need to expand and they have good access to capital. Their formats might get smaller because of the transition to online. Target’s exit has left so much retail space. It does what it does and gives you a 6% yield.

Valuation has improved quite significantly. If you look at it relative to other retail REITs in North America, it is trading at a little bit of a premium. It wouldn’t be amongst his top retail picks, but continues to like the business. Prefers strip centres versus enclosed malls. This has a tremendous development pipeline with a sustainable yield and a very good balance sheet.

He feels interest sensitives are not where you want to be. These are the ultimate interest sensitive vehicles. Unless you want to hold it for a very long time, don’t go into it.

He is very excited about this one. It was not always a very clean structure. They had the Smart Center vehicle that was off to the side. They have internalize that now and brought that whole development team inside. They developed basically all the Wal-Mart’s across Canada. You combine that with the growth opportunity with their existing portfolio and you have a mix of stablity and growth. It deserves a higher multiple in the market. 5.4% yield. They don’t have pricing power over Wal-Mart, but Wal-Mart attracts other great tenants.

Retail oriented REIT. Wal-Mart is 27% of their revenues. It is harder to get rental rate increases. They acquired 24 properties from Smart Centers. It does enhance the long term growth profile. It’s a bigger and better REIT. Below 90% payout ratio. It is about 2% below NAV. She would be patient and acquire it when it is lower.

People have been concerned about the retail business right now, however none of those issues affect this company. They are coming in with a Wal-Mart (WMT-N) anchor. This is an opportunity to buy a very, very stable cash flow. They have internalized their development programs. Have a fully internalized management with an internal development program that will now be able to continue to expand across Canada in Wal-Mart anchored centres and possibly in the US over time. Dividend yield of 5.37%.

Retail assets and their largest tenant is Wal-Mart. Historically they have been 99% occupied which has driven stability in their cash flow as well as their distributions. They have started to dispose of some of their non-core assets. A stable yield and you will get 3%-5% cash flow growth.

His company has this with a $29 target. Thinks the cash flow is solid. This is diversified through Canada, so you are not specific to any single place.

This is retail, so there is a little bit of pressure with online sales. Also, Canadians have a little bit less money to spend. However, this company's largest tenant is Wal-Mart (WMT-N) along with the other kind of companies that would be in these anchored areas. Thinks this is a good time to buy into this. Cheap relative to their peers.

Trading at a larger discount to NAV than REI.UN-T. But you get a slightly lower growth. Sustainable payout ratio as well as a sustainable leverage. 99% occupancy level with Wal-Mart stores as tenants. Will grow free cash flow at a higher level than in the past since new CEO came in and is looking to provide value for investors.
