Likes them. They confirmed their dividend increase. Debt to EBITDA is reduced to normal levels. They won't make a new purchase, but will ensure that existing assets return 8-10%. You should own this as a mainstay in your portfolio. However, Michigan's governor threatens to shut down ENB's line.

Best of the apartment REITs. Trades at a big discount to NAV. Rent collection rate is 99%. They're defensive. Holdings in Alberta benefit from a high-growth rate in the general economy as oil comes back. (Analysts’ price target is $40.02)

He loves industrial REITs because of e-commerce. Their holdings are all in the US. Interest rates are low, so refinancing is cheap. Best in class. (Analysts’ price target is $19.53)

He expects BAM to take it over and it's a good thing to keep BPY within Brookfield/BAM. The deal is accretive for BAM which he really likes. About BPY, you don't want to own these assets (offices, large retail) during this pandemic. Better to own apartments and industrials. BAM fell 5% on news of the takeover, but investors don't understand how accretive this deal is. BAM is a fantastic asset allocator; he wouldn't bet against them.

Killam vs. Crombie REITs Killam holds apartments, an asset class he really likes among REITs. Rent-collection rates are really high for Killam, so no worries about that. All these REITs trade at a 10-15% discount to NAV. Funding costs will drop 1%, because they get funding from CMHC. A hiccup comes from mobile homes which had weakness in the last quarter. Other businesses are fine. CROMBIE: He owns Crombie's debt, not the REIT. This is anchroed by Canadian Safeway and Sobey stores. Highly defensive. Sobeys had an integration problem out west. He likes this as a conservative REIT, but it won't do much. Likes both.

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.
