Likes it even though he's not positive on retail. They own some of the best Canadian retail in Canada. Pays a 4.5% dividend. Owns some of the best Canadian retail real estate--a niche of grocery stores and pharmacies which are stable and sell necessities. Super managers. The overhang of the previous owner is fading. They converted from a company to a REIT which will attract more investors by appearing on REIT indicies. They have 24 million square feet of development potential on land they already own.

Doesn't follow this closely, but they are well-managed and a good real estate company overall. (The ticker has changed to FCR recently.)

Great Managers. All about intensification at the city level. Fantastic assets with growth profile. (Analysts’ price target is $23.75)

They own locations in the larger cities, primarily grocery anchored shopping centres. They are managed by a good focused real estate team. They like to buy the best locations in urban areas. He will look at it on a pull back. It is a good long term hold.

He does not own REITs but this is probably his favourite in the space. They did it right in the right markets. They created liberty village. They really did well pumping money into Hazelton Lanes. He believes it is still selling at a discount to its NAV.

A large owner-operator of shopping malls. 4.2% dividend. It's been sideways. It's an income vehicle and a slow grower. You own this for stable income. He doesn't see a retail "apocalypse." Safe dividend, maybe an increase, and a good
operator. This won't scream up in price anytime soon. It's stable. Prefers Riocan REIT.

Not a sell, though he owns the bonds. A retail story, but more defensive with liquor, drug, and grocery stores. Higher rates, and did a questionable issuance. Into new green development. Likes the company and its assets. But not the time to own it.

Management quite good, They develop space for condos and stores. Trades at a premium. Yield is not as high as other REITs, but yield of 4% is actually not bad.

This is an urban everyday needs portfolio. Very resilient. He models 3.8% growth from 2016 to 2018. This is not cheap, trading at around 19X, it is still trading slightly below its five-year average. 81% payout ratio, so you are going to get paid the 4.3% distribution. Its balance sheet is very good. Thinks you could buy this closer to $18.50 or $19 if you get an opportunity.

Doesn’t own any REITs at this time, but if he were to own one, this would be the one. Likes the way they are running the company and the acquisitions they’ve made. They are in the prime areas where it is difficult to get real estate anymore. They have a serious footprint in Yorkville which arguably, price per square foot, is the most valuable real estate in Toronto.

A very well-capitalized Real Estate Operating Company, with a lot of retail properties across Canada. Focused in urban major city centres and are buying up real estate in good locations, in close proximity to where people live, which benefits from a combination of an increase in population growth and an increase in incomes. About 20% of properties are anchored by grocery stores. Has a good development pipeline and an exceptional balance sheet. 70% of assets are unencumbered, which gives a lot of flexibility in the event of higher rates or an economic downturn. Dividend yield of 4.1%.

He owns the bonds. They have fantastic assets, and believe in not only growing their bottom line versus acquisitions, but also in the intensification story, such as core cities like Toronto. Their risk money is re-developing projects such as Yorkville, Lawrence or Liberty Square. Believes it is trading at a 20% discount to its NAV.

Feels the 3 top picks have probably lagged the market unfairly. This has lagged for a number of reasons. There is a bit of a concern on the retail market in general, but he would argue that their locations are highly resilient. They’ve had their guidance lowered a little because of some of the acquisitions they did, some developments cost a fair bit of money. However, long term, this is going to work out very well. Thinks management has got the message that they need to provide more FFO per share growth over the next couple of quarters. The previous CEO has been selling which has put some pressure on the stock, but has nothing to do with the valuation of the company. Dividend yield of 4.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $23.)

Generally the sector has underperformed. The largest shareholder has done a secondary offering of their shares. The feeling is that they will keep selling down. But this is a fantastic company. They are incredibly defensive. They execute well. He is closer to looking at buying it. Net operating income should really pop over the next couple of years.
