HOLD
He likes holding this one. Apartments are doing well in the space. He worries if these are being over valued. REIT distribution yeilds need to be re-though. Real Estate is very capital intensive and high distributions may require more debt and more equity to get raised to pay them. He prefers a lower yield and low payout ratios. This REIT has done things well, with a low distribution yield that is allowing free cash flow to grow at 18%. He prefers owning apartment REITs versus owning a condo. Yield 1.8%

(A Top Pick Aug 16/18, Up 21%) If you want to own one international real estate holding -- this is it. They continue to raise lots of capital and have an army to deploy it. They charge fees to management assets and fees on the profits. The bigger the pool of assets, the bigger the fees they collect. Their inside owners interests are well aligned with investors. If markets do drop, they are best positioned to take advantage of opportunities. There could be some risk that regulations that come into the private equity market, but he is not too concerned it would impact their fees.

HOLD
Real Estate is a long term asset and you should look to hold it for the compounding benefit. They have great properties that generate good cash flow with some growth. Walmart is their largest tenant and some will come up for renewal soon -- a little worrying to him.

DON'T BUY
Why the higher yeild? He prefers to put money in with the parent instead. BPY.UN-T holds a lot of US malls and offices. There are supply issues in some of those key markets and the capital insensitivity is creating some uncertainty, resulting in the higher yield he thinks. The leverage is also pretty high. It will do well in the long run and they hold high quality assets. But he doesn't think you need to be there.
