This summary was created by AI, based on 2 opinions in the last 12 months.

The experts have mixed opinions on Slate Grocery REIT. One expert mentions concerns over the overpayment of distribution and doubts about its sustainability, as well as muted top-line growth and prioritizing stock buybacks over debt payment. Another expert, however, highlights the stable distribution and decent portfolio, especially in US grocery assets. The stock seems to have both positive and negative aspects, making it a somewhat uncertain investment.

Fair Value

Issue is overpayment of distribution, not sure it's sustainable, interest costs really cutting into bottom line. Top line muted, only 0.5% growth this past quarter. Buying stock rather than paying down debt. Look elsewhere, try FCR.


Stable distribution. Canadian REIT that invests in US grocery assets. Decent portfolio, even if it is in secondary markets (which may not be bad for grocery markets). Attractive valuation. Pretty steady earnings grower. 


Listed in Canada, owns properties across the US. Likes the sector of grocery-anchored shopping centres. Low growth, but steady. Only 1% growth expected this year, so no distribution increase anticipated. Above-average leverage.

SGR's small size adds some risk, but it is priced well enough and cash flow is stable. 
3% to 5% growth is expected. 
We would prefer DIR.UN but if industrial sector exposure is not needed we would be fine with SGR. 
Our January 23 comments still apply, but the valuation is better today.

Assets in US, trades on TSX. Shopping centres benefit when anchor tenant is a grocery. Good job growing portfolio. Balance sheet is fine, distribution is safe. Safe and stable hold as it takes time to digest recent acquisition.
US grocery anchored in the US. It is in a good spot. They recently did a good acquisition of complimentary stores. It is pretty safe in terms of distribution.
US-domiciled REIT that trades in Canada, anchored by grocery stores. Defensive. Missed last quarter, but not a big deal. In the right spot. Small market cap, so a liquidity issue. Buys good assets. Cheap valuation. He sold when it moved up.

Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. Momentum is solid and growth is decent. Continues to make acquisitions. Dividend is fine, but payout ratio is high at almost 100% of cash flow. Debt has improved and grocery real estate gives stability. $500M in market cap, so relatively small. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free

It is focused on US grocery-anchored shopping centers. It is fairly valued after just doing an acquisition. It is a high yielding stock, but he does not think they are covering the distribution today. There is higher value in the sector today.
Likes it. Their assets are all US--Indiana, Illinois--and centered on groceries. The 9% yield is safe. Leverage isn't high. Trades at a 15% discount to NAV. Good growth ahead, at least six months. Problem is few follow this, because it's small. High rent-collection rate.
