Largest landlord in Canada and anchored by large stable tenants. Cheap, relative to the last couple of years. Also have green development, which adds to their bottom line. Also, because they own so much space, anyone coming up from the US would be dealing with them. Lease rollovers in the next couple of years with increased rents.

Will have a tough time over the next couple of months. Think they stole Countrywide in their acquisition because, it was any other time, the antitrust laws would kick in. 2 years from now they will make a lot of money. 6% dividend.

Midst of a takeover with Montreal exchange (MXX-T). Because of the political situation, difficult to tell if this will actually work. CEO just left. Some market pressure because they have cut fees in order to stay competitive. Very consistent business. Volatility helps their underlying business with the extra trading revenue. Over 3% yield.

Falls under the small cap REITs space, which is having a really tough time. Contemporaries in the US have had valuations dropped from 16X AFFO down to 13X. During this volatility, he would stay away from the small caps because of funding issues. Because of distribution stability he would rather up his portfolio to large-cap REITs.
