Diving Into Strip Centers
The shopping center REITs have seen prices plunge and now trade at substantial discounts to NAV.Several REITs in the sector reduced or eliminated dividends to conserve cash.We're bullish on FRT as a long-term choice, but haven't reopened our position yet due to guidance for a few weak quarters.FRT's AFFO looks low, and their payout ratio looks high because management is waiting to record revenue from several tenants until it is collected in cash.

REIT Earnings Preview: Who Paid The Rent?
Who paid the rent? Real estate earnings season kicks off this week with more than 200 REITs and housing industry companies reporting earnings over the next month.Rent collection - a metric that was rarely reported in the pre-COVID-19 era - has become the most critical statistic tracked by investors due to its impact on dividend-paying capacity.Dividend cuts have been a major theme throughout the pandemic. 65 of 170 equity REITs have reduced their dividend, but since the start of Q3, dividend increases have outnumbered cuts.REITs enter third-quarter earnings season as the third-worst performing out of 11 GICS equity sectors.

This article looks at the implications of very cheap debt financing for FRT and other companies uniquely pressured by the current economic environment. Fed-impacted front end credit markets may be masking credit stress for bond investors, but strategic management teams could potentially use easy credit to their ability to improve prospects.
