It has been a laggard for the best part of 5 years. There is nothing in the chart pattern at the moment. There is no evidence they are going to turn the ship around from the chart.

These REITs valuations have come down as interest rates went up. The real catalyst for this name is completing Jackson Park in 2019 and Sears releasing their space. It does have a flat growth rate. It is trading at a 13% below its assumed Net Asset Value. The balance sheet is not bad. Unsexy name. A yield proxy. Good management team. (Analysts’ price target is $24)

HR.UN-T vs. CHR.UN-T. Hang onto CSH.UN-T. They are both AMZN-Q proof. Tenants pay rent so they are not long term leases like elsewhere in the REIT space. He would lighten up on HR.UN-T

He wouldn’t want to be heavily loaded with REITs. He only has one left, and it is commercial with all commercial properties. Be a little cautious over the next year. If it got below $20.21, that indicates there’s something else going on out there and the market doesn’t want to be in real estate anymore.

Announced they were going to make close to $1 billion in sales out of the US, and reinvest in multi-resident businesses. This is a strategy that is getting a little tired. His biggest issue is that they are so diversified, such as office, residential, redevelopment, Canada, US, it is too much for an analyst. Thinks they’ve been hurt by this.

He likes this company. Very well diversified with a very attractive dividend yield. In recent years they’ve increased their US exposure. It is so well diversified that you can bank on pretty moderate but stable cash flow and cash flow growth for the foreseeable future.

You buy this for yield. Because interest rates are low and lots of investors are reaching for yield, most of these stocks are overbought. Incremental demand might not be there, which may be the reason it is just going sideways. There may be a slight chance of it going lower. Be absolutely disciplined and make sure of the level you want to get out. Don’t be fooled by the yield, because as the price goes lower, the yield goes up. Dividend yield of 6.4%.

Largely a commercial and industrial manager of real estate assets, and for years and years a wonderful simple strategy. They would build a commercial building, mortgage it, lease it for 20 years and lock in a spread. It was predictable and it was great. They then branched out, and in 2008 had a near-death experience when they built the Bow office tower in Calgary. They almost ran out of money because they hadn’t locked up their financing. This is a low growth company. Distribution is growing, very slowly. It’s the kind of company that will suffer if interest rates grow. The 6% distribution is not a dividend and is taxed as other income, but is absolutely safe. This is only a yield play.

(A Top Pick Oct 21/16. Up 1%.) He chose this because of its cheap valuation and its long-term Alberta leases. The balance sheet has gotten slightly worse, but is still pretty good. Payout ratio is still pretty good at 81%. Trading at 12.7X 2017 versus its five-year average of 13.5X and its peers at around 13X.

A well diversified REIT with good assets. His problem with REITs is that they get a valuation because of their payout, which is a little excessive, relative to the rest of the market. Trading at 12 to 15 times enterprise value to operating cash flow. There is no real organic growth in most of them. They are popular with investors because they pay out up to 90% of their Operating Cash flow as a yield.

He has an 81% payout ratio on 2017/2018, which is pretty safe for a REIT. This is one you can buy now. Trades at a 13% discount to his NAV and has a decent growth rate of about 3%, versus 2.8% of its diversified peers. Its balance sheet isn’t bad with a 42% Debt to Fair Value.

A well-managed REIT. There are a number of headwinds with interest rates going up, potential debt maturities coming due. They have some office space in Calgary which is a bit under pressure, but not catastrophic. Good income. A “wait and see” situation.

(Top Pick Jul 12/16, Down 2.51%) The cheapest valuation, trading below NAV. He hangs on to it and this is a great entry point. He thinks you are good for a year on REITs but not for 5 years. Keep an eye on the rate outlook.

A good entry point. It has pulled back quite a bit, and for no fundamental reason. Generally, rising interest rates are not that favourable for REITs, but she is not anticipating a sharply rising interest rate environment. They are in commercial as well as some residential in the US. A well-run company. Dividend yield of 6.5%.

He likes it although it is not his favourite. He holds it in all of his REIT funds. Money has been reallocated due to the surprise increase in the interest rate by the BOC. Money has been exiting this sector and this is the second biggest REIT in Canada. If you are long term hold, then it is a safe long term hold.
