Granite vs. BAM Granite has done well and he regrets not buying it. They've done a great job transforming the Magna assets. It's come a long way. He's neutral on it now. BAM is totally different, a huge conglomerate, a premier stock on the TSX. You can't compare the two.

For an RRSP as a 2-3-year hold, vs. BAM Go with BAM. But he likes Granite--boasts a very strong balance sheet with low debt which protects them in a downturn. Or they can lever up their balance sheet and buy accretive assets.

He likes them a lot. Their position in industrial assets is where the growth is globally. E-commerce is benefiting them and should continue. It is still early and there is lots of runway as they develop and take advantage of their expertise. They have a 6% unlevered cash flow return -- which is excellent. A core holding.

REITs are generally expensive. It trades at 18 times EBITDA. Logistics and warehousing is now 50% of their portfolio and this space is growing. It has a low payout ratio, so there is room for the dividend to grow. A stellar balance sheet gives them lots of options. Yield 4.29% (Analysts’ price target is $69.50)

Is a global industrial landlord in North America and Europe. The new CEO is doing well, likes him. CEO is transitioning the assets into a high-quality industrial portfolio, slashing exposure to Magna about 97% from 5 years ago. Has an underlevered balance sheet, only 20% debt, and $1 billion in liquidity. YTD, they have spent that amount in acquisitions. She expects double-digit earnings growth. Pays a 4.4% yield. (Analysts’ price target is $68.11)

It was spun out from Magna a while ago. New management, since last summer, has done an excellent job. He likes international warehousing, tied in with e-commerce, a story he really likes. They're up 54% in five years. He bought it a while ago.

Attractively priced today. Founded by Magna, which is now 51% of their revenue. Lots of capacity on balance sheet to acquire. Levered at only 17%, and they'll go to 35%. Big runway for growth. A very attractive name. Yield of around 5%.

The yield is 4.9%. This is a safe hold. He has a $58 target on it. Dividend is safe. It has a low payout ratio for a REIT. They are doing a large transition now. He would hold on to this.

You're buying this for the new CEO, not its assets. It was an industrial REIT and was the real estate entity of Magna. It's since diversified out of it. Granite doesn't have much leverage to expand into other industrial assets. It brought in the CEO of Pure Industrial REIT who is the right person in place. Are you too far along in the industrial real estate cycle for him to go out and find value? He thinks the industrial story has legs. He likes Granite. But it when it sells off a bit. Makes sense long term.

There was a strategic review by management for potentially selling the company, but nothing came of that. There was some turnover with the CEO. The big issue is when it initially came to the market, it had very significant exposure to Magna (MG-T), which was their largest tenant. However, it had a pristine balance sheet. When you think of the Debt to Growth Book Value, it had approximately 25%, and the theory was that if they increased the leverage and took that Debt to Growth Book Value to 40%, they would have $1 billion to play with, diversify tenant exposure, make acquisitions. However they haven’t done any of that. That is unfortunate, because real estate prices have gone up significantly. It pays a decent dividend of 5%. His concern is that you really do need the leadership in there.
